A weekend-long demonstration attracted nearly 200 people as campaigners continue their fight to keep NHS services.

The march, which took place from Friday to Sunday, went from Calderdale Royal Hospital to Pinderfields, via Dewsbury and District Hospital. There was also a rally on Friday at Dewsbury Town Hall.

The march, organised by Walk for NHS, was to protest the downgrading of Dewsbury’s accident and emergency department and what the group sees as privatisation of NHS services.
