Hundreds sign the Drop the Bill petition(March 05, 2012)
Mark and other health campaigners got 400 signatures in 2 hours on Saturday morning for the Drop the Bill rally at Preston Flag Market.
Preston MP Mark Hendrick said “The response on Saturday echoes what’s going on around the country, that the public want the Government to Drop the Health and Social Care Bill. The public and health professionals are against it and what was really pleasing was to have health workers thanking us for staging the event."
"Since the arrival of the Coalition Government we are already seeing increases in waiting times and nursing staff being cut. I will continue to campaign against David Cameron’s and Nick Clegg’s re organisation of the NHS and let them know that the people of Preston want them to Drop the Bill."
