Marching to Save our Whittington
Can't imagine anybody living locally who is not annoyed at the proposal to close Whittington Hospital 's A & E department.
The campaign against the closure has been going on for weeks.
The heavy rain didn't deter all those who turn out for the public March yesterday.
Quoting from our local papers
THERE were extraordinary scenes this afternoon when close to 5,000 people marched through the streets of Islington with one intention: To 'Save Our Whittington'.
The protest was over plans to cut the Accident and Emergency department at the hospital in Archway. After snaking from Highbury Corner to the hospital, there were speeches from politicians from all the main parties, patient campaigners and health experts. Eyewitnesses said it was the biggest march of its kind in Islington in recent memory.
Lets hope those who made the proposal will stop and think about residents needs....
