NHS - Comment is free

I have promised one of the other selection candidates, the campaigns co-ordinator in London, that I will do some "Save the NHS" campaigning in the coming week.
The plan is, the printers will drop off some leaflets on my doorstep on Thursday.  If I have time I'll get flyering outside local hospitals.  I'll come back from Cardiff for Friday night, then we're assembling at Hyde Park and proceeding to Downing Street to hand in the petition.

Have you seen the "stop the NHS white paper" online petition?
and this one "hands off our NHS" to "kill the Bill" aiming to get 100,000 in a week.
Here is some info I've copied from the Met Police about road closures for the march and rally.

The other question I have for other bloggers, is seeing as the public meeting was not in a hospital but in the Conway Hall, what are we doing to communicate with actual service users in local hospitals?
