THOUSANDS of protesters will gather in central London tomorrow to demand an end to the NHS crisis and to show solidarity with striking healthcare workers.
The SOS NHS coalition has called the action in response to the some 500 avoidable deaths taking place in the NHS each week.
It is hoping to put pressure on the government to adequately fund the service to end the crisis.
The protest comes days ahead of the Spring Budget and the mass walkout of public-sector workers, and is demanding investment in the NHS.
Junior Doctor Andrew Meyerson, who will be taking part in the march, said the deaths are due to “catastrophic” delays in A&E departments due to government mismanagement.
“A good shift nowadays for those working in A&E departments is one where someone doesn’t die in our waiting rooms or show up dead on arrival in the back of a delayed ambulance,” he said.
“We will no longer tolerate the destruction of our NHS and we are prepared to fight back. Enough is enough.”
The protest with gather opposite Warren Street station at 12 noon.
