Marchers Hoping To Save Whittington

There's a march this Saturday to protest against proposals to cut services at Archway's Whittington hospital - not just A&E closures, as reported last year, but the maternity and ICU units are also threatened, and every one of the hospital's seven 'future scenarios' involve closing paediatric inpatients wards. North Central London NHS needs to cut £560m from its annual budget by 2017 (something which we're bound to become more familiar with in the near future) but residents are not happy. The march sets off from Highbury Corner at 12 (see the Defend Whittington Hospital Coalition for tips on how to get there; TfL are being their usual weekend selves).
