Protestors stopped traffic in Whitechapel Road last Friday as they took to the streets to march against NHS cuts which threaten jobs in the Barts and the London Trust.
Sarah Creagh, 28, a Right to Work activist at the Royal London protestDoctors, nurses, trade unionists and patients protested outside Whitechapel’s Royal London Hospital over the 635 job losses planned in the Trust, which also covers the London Chest Hospital and Barts.
To meet government saving targets of 20 per cent, 250 nurses could be axed and 100 hospital beds will go.
The protest briefly blocked the road outside the Urban Bar, chanting “Whose NHS? Our NHS?”.
Sarah Creagh, 28, of Roman Road worked as a nurse in Bristol and is a Right to Work activist, one of the groups along with Hands Off Our Public Services and Keep Our NHS Public who called the protest.
She said: “This is happening in one of the most deprived boroughs in London with its own particular health needs, such as more prevalent diabetes for example.”
Glyn Robbins, a HOOPs spokesman, said: “When I think about it, my grandmother, mum and daughter were all born here.
“It’s a part of the community and that’s why we need to defend it.”

The cuts at Barts and the Royal London NHS Trust!
· 250 nurses, 83 other clinical posts including doctor time
· in total 630 jobs to go
· 100 beds to close
Defend our NHS in Tower Hamlets
· 500 jobs gone at local NHS Primary Care Trusts
· cuts at Mile End
· across London up to 50% cuts in community health services such as district nursing
· mental health services expect huge cuts
· over £100M a year to go as payment to the private company running the new PFI hospital while services are being cut
David Cameron misled us before the 2010 election when he said that NHS funding would be protected. 120,000 jobs are under threat, with £14 billion NHS cuts over three years. Privatisation races ahead. Local council cuts attack home care, housing and services for those most in need. . Public service cuts are making working class people pay for the bankers’ crisis. The fight back has started. Speech therapists in Southwark have taken strike action against job cuts. 100s attended a protest meeting in Bow last Thursday against LBTH cuts. Staff and the local community marched on against £15M cuts at the Homerton
