March against hospital plans

People from Todmorden and Walsden are being urged to join a march to oppose plans to move several services away from Rochdale Infirmary.

The Save Our Services public march will protest against the changes including conversion of the accident and emergency department to an urgent care centre.

Organiser Jean Ashworth, a Rochdale borough councillor, said: “We see the proposals as placing people at risk.”

The march will take place on Saturday March 26, setting off from Rochdale Town Hall at 1pm and heading to the hospital.

Anybody who would like to join the march can contact Coun Ashworth on 07904 383744 for more information.
