Dear friends of the NHS
First , thanks to everyone who contributed to funding the judicial reviews of the government’s and NHS England’s damaging changes to our health service. You’ll be pleased to know that the funding appeals for the reviews – both of which DONHS is supporting have reached their targets. The case will be heard in Leeds High Court on Tuesday 24th April.
Meanwhile we continue to show our support for the NHS and its staff in other ways. There will be a day of protest all over the country on Saturday 3rd February. A march in London will be mirrored by events right across England.
We urge supporters in Wirral to join us outside Arrowe Park Hospital from 1.00pm. Show that you : value hospitals like Arrowe Park and Clatterbridge ; support NHS staff: nurses,doctors,midwives,paramedics and others; and believe in a free,comprehensive ,universal National Health Service . Or if you just want to know more about the crisis in our NHS and the answers to it. Come and join us! Details at: https://www.facebook.com/events/157164351576903/
The Liverpool protest will be a day earlier on Friday 2nd February . Details at :
Our next public meeting (your MP and councillors have been invited) will be on Friday 2nd March in Birkenhead from 7.00pm. The venue is : The Welcome Centre 43 Hamilton Street, Birkenhead, CH41 5AA

To celebrate – and to show our support for the service and all who work with it – we will be holding not one but two parties ! The first will be on Saturday 30th June in Vale Park, New Brighton.
The second will be a social and public meeting in Birkenhead, 5th July
There is another significant birthday this year. The NHS is 70. Defend Our NHS is 7! This group was was founded exactly seven years ago this month. We’ve grown – and perhaps to recognise what has been achieved we won an award ! Take a look at :
