Hands Off Our Hospitals

The Lanarkshire Health United protest was the second protest of the day which aimed to highlight the scale of public anger over NHS Lanarkshire’s plans to close either Hairmyers or Monklands A&E units, with Monklands being the “Clear preferred option”. A public consultation on the proposal to close one of Lanarkshire’s Accidents & Emergencies Units- which began in late January and is expected to end on the 28th April; cited that problems with lack of consultants and the need to bring working hours into line with European legislation are among the reasons given for the need to reduce the number of A&E’s in Lanarkshire.
