Not everybody cares about preserving the NHS as a free service, according to a March Town councillor, who has set up a public meeting to rally public support.

Councillor Martin Field has organised a meeting for everybody worried about the future of the NHS after seeing growing concerns about local services.

He said: ““People in March and Wisbech are very concerned that the outpatient and other services are under threat.

“That services like ours are facing cuts is, of course, inevitable with the creeping privatisation of our NHS.

“There will be a number of speakers with expertise and experience of the changes in our NHS who will be able to answer questions about local people’s concerns.”

He added: “Not everyone cares about preserving our NHS as a publicly run, free and national service. We are concerned that the March 31 date is merely a stay of execution.”

The meeting, organised by Wisbech, March and District Trades Union Council, will discuss the issue of the future of NHS services locally.
