Crookes councillors and local Labour Party campaigners have continued their fight to defend the NHS. Following a National Day of Action in November, campaigners took to the streets of Crookes again in January.
"People in Crookes were passionate about adding their voices to the campaign against attacks and cuts on the NHS," said Crookes Councillor Craig Gamble Pugh. "Many people here work for the NHS or other public services, most others have depended on the NHS at some time."

"People are angry at the gamble the government is taking with the NHS by cutting funds and they know they can trust the Labour Party to defend it," continued Craig. "We gathered hundreds of signatures on our petition, talked to people at our street stall, and delivered leaflets door to door."
