Lest we Forget!
It is quite surprising that so many local folks these days have no idea whatsoever about how hard some of us fought to try and save our children’s A & E and maternity hospital services back in 2003.
CARES relentlessly created many events, including organising many meetings, a protest march in Southport with an estimated 4,000 people and one in Formby and also raised a massive petition of almost 20, 000 signatures against NHS plans to remove the services.
Above: Just one of many meetings that CARES attended in the fight for Southport’s stolen maternity and children’s emergency services.
