Letter to Ascot local press
Sir / Madam,
Amazingly, I witnessed the demo outside my hospital window, at Frimley Park Hospital this week. Recovering from surgery…pretty rough and in pain…there was a great hullabaloo outside. Tottered to window. There were my long-time mates from SHH ( Save Heatherwood Hospital), together with members of UNITE & UNISON.
I was so hugely touched to see them: comrades of some 11 years campaigning for Heatherwood and the NHS.
Spent all day speaking to everyone who came into the Ward…20 or so,including a Matron. Checked that they knew what the demo was about and understood implications of the imminent WOS : Wholly Owned Subsidiary for 800 or so workers.
Back in bed, I cried. So full of love and appreciation for the demonstrators.
Such LONG TERM, STEADFAST, FOCUSED ACTION.
Member Voluntary group Save Heatherwood Hospital for 16 or so years.
