Kent Labour Women against closure of Stroke Unit at QEQM Margate

A group of Labour Women from Folkestone went to support SONIK (Save our NHS in Kent) in their fight to stop the closure of the Stroke Unit at the QEQM in Margate.

The “emergency event” was held outside the hospital and was called to demonstrate against threats to vital units, including the hospital’s stroke unit and further changes being discussed by the NHS.

SONIK has managed to raise enough funds to support two judicial reviews into the proposed changes of NHS services in Kent but more needs to be done.
