Pictures & video of our amazing demo

25,000 people marched on 26th January 2013 to Save Lewisham Hospital. The march was led by Lewisham Hospital workers and a group of Olympic drummers and nurses. It took nearly two hours for the march to finally get to Mountsfield Park from the roundabout at Lewisham Station.

Here are pictures which show a truly amazing and historic day for Lewisham, our hospital, and the NHS

  2. Larry Poulton says:

    I’m disgusted that the greed of PFI schemes has led to the downfall of a public service. I will be there…

    Westminster Students’ Left of University of Westminster fully supports this campaign, we’ll be joining you and are building for the march, leafleting and postering and raising awareness with our students, this closure will affect everyone in South London and is a dangerous policy costing lives, another attack on our Health Service toward privatisation.

    Took the bus from Brookhowse Rd in Bellingham to the QE hospital in Woolwich Common today. It took us almost 2 hours. I really don’t want this to be the future of my trips to hospital!

  7. Lee Farrell says:

    Lewisham A&E I s a much needed service, If it is closed alot of lives will be lost through injury or accidents they may have, In the near by areas and need this service as it is the closest one to them, also, People with wounds, Car crashes, or bone brakages, Will be most affected by the closure and Lives will be lost from the travel of some where further away, We urge that A&E I kept open, We all rely on it

    All my 6 children were born , treated in A&E , and currently have appointments in our Hospital – Lewisham, i just cannot fathom how this Goverment can justify sending out Billions of our tax payers money to other countries supporting them when making his own people suffer.{Closing down all Hospitals etc- Benefits} this is absolutly scandleous.
    They are the Goverment but surely even for them there must be a full stop point- what about OUR HUMAN RIGHTS!!!!!!!
    Lewisham is the Heart of this community and Borough it feels like part of us is being ripped out.
    I pray to god that this pen pushing idiot back tracks.
    The march was fantastic – we need to carry on fighting until this man sees sense.

  9. Ann says:

    I am so very proud to live in a borough, where we can all pull together for our Hospital.
    Well done Lewisham, we can’t stop now
