Activists are set to show their support for NHS staff in the face of cuts and privatisation by taking part in a ‘Hands Around Our Hospital’ event on Sunday organised by the North Herts branch of the People’s Assembly.

A spokesman for the peaceful community protest and ‘show of love’ for the NHS said: “Join hands to help make a circle of support and protection around our hospital.

“Bring balloons, flags placards and pictures. “Come by yourself, come as a family, bring your friends.

“Come to the hospital grassed area at 10.30am and show your love for our health service.

“Yes to our health service, no to cuts, closures and drops in standards.

“No to sell off to private companies.”
