Protesters dressed as zombie doctors and nurses joined the march and rally in Manchester to highlight the impact of Government policies on jobs and spending across the NHS
Thousands of people have taken to the streets to join a union protest against NHS cuts on the opening day of the Tory Party conference.
Up to 40,000 people are expected to join a march and rally in Manchester to highlight the impact of Government policies on jobs and spending across the health service.
The protest also drew attention to the “rapid sell-off” of the most lucrative parts of the NHS to private healthcare companies.
Demonstrators dressed as zombie doctors, nurses and patients while a flashmob broke into a performance of Michael Jackson’s Thriller in front of the gathered crowds.
Protesters assembled at Liverpool Road at 11am before marching to a rally in Whitworth Park, which is set to start around 2.30pm.
