Mid Sussex Labour Party is inviting the public to a meeting in Burgess Hill next Tuesday (March 14) to ‘help defend the NHS’.

The public meeting, which has been organised by the Burgess Hill Labour Party is taking place at Cyprus Hall in Cyprus Road at 8pm.

Pam Haigh, chairman of Mid Sussex Labour Party, said: “We want to build on last Saturday’s well attended London NHS rally which was supported by people from across the country.

“If you want to find out more about the state of the NHS and social care try and attend the meeting. You don’t have to be a member of the Labour Party, everyone is welcome.

“Whether you have political views or not everyone’s support for the NHS and social care is vital now. The greater the range of opinions the better will be the debate on such vital services.”

The evening will include guest speakers and doors will open to the public at 7.30pm.

David Andrews, chairman of the Burgess Hill branch said: “We hope for a lively debate on ways to improve these services. We cannot let them be starved of funds or privatised. Our NHS should remain the envy of other countries.

There is no charge for admittance to the meeting, but Burgess Hill Labour Party will welcome donations to help pay for the hall hire.
