Defending the NHS Public Meeting – Tue 9th Aug 2016 Manchester

Two weeks ago it was announced that Manchester Mental Health and Social Care Trust have – for the time-being – reversed their decision to close the city’s 8 community specialist psycological services.

Alongside this victory nationally there is the on-going junior doctors dispute. Following the tremendous and well supported action taken earlier in the year, junior doctors in the BMA rejected an updated offer from Jeremy Hunt in early July and the organisation in currently debating what steps to take next.
TUC NHS Mental
