Mike Davies Says "Save Our Beds - Okehampton Hospital- Facebook Page
PROTEST PHOTO: In their meeting this afternoon the Clinical Commission Group (CCG) voted against Okehampton Hospital being an option. I would like to thank Tony... Leech for speaking on our behalf and keeping detailed notes of the meeting.
With this in mind I would like as many people as possible to turn up at Okehampton Hospital this Saturday (1st October) at 10.00am for thirty minutes for a protest photo. With as many posters 'Save Our Beds' as possible.
We will need to meet in Cavell Way by the main entrance. It will be unfair to meet right outside the main doors in case we restrict ambulances and people wanting to visit the hospital.
I have informed the Police and various press agencies.
Please pass the word around as not everyone is on Facebook. 10.00am this Saturday in Cavell Way, Okehampton. Please share this on your own Facebook pages.
It is not worth us protesting for any longer at Okehampton as the people in the hospital (staff and patients) would agree with us. The majority of individuals we are protesting are based in Exeter.
We will now plan to carry out an actual protest at the next CCG meeting in Exeter in November.
Please also start to put Posters in cars, etc, 'Save Our Beds - Okehampton Hospital'.
Many thanks, Mike Davies."
