West Cornwall Hospital March
7:02am 3rd December 2011
Hundreds of campaigners are due to march on the West Cornwall hospital.
They are planning to ring the building and join hands.
They are worried a ward is shut, and there is still no full time doctor cover at Casualty.
Alana Bates is from Penwith Anti-Cuts Alliance. She has this message for health bosses in Cornwal:
"Stop cutting our health service and prioritise health for people. I don't think that they are prepared to re-think it unless people really stand up and say 'this is our NHS and we pay for it with our taxes.' So it's time for people to really make their voice heard."
"I'm worried as a mother, what kind of health service there will be for my children. Having to go up to Treliske all the time is very, very stressful. I mean the difference between going from Lands End to Penzance or going from Lands End to Truro, it is a big difference for people."
Health bosses insist the hospital is not under threat.
