|Me at the front of the rally in Acton|
At the rally meet up point, on Ealing Common, there was the lovely sound of Reggae music and the sight of many banners.
Myself and about ten other representatives were given the chance to make speeches about why they thought that our local hospitals should not be closed.
Before the rally speeches started Councillor Andrew Steed gave a Vox pop to YouTube.

Lastly, I would say that those hospitals which are not be downgraded will have to take on a large number of extra patients and the plans do not show that this will work out. The Secretary of State should hold his hands up and drop these proposals.
