Thousands of health workers, unions and activists are marching to demand and end to the NHS crisis at a major protest in London.
Crowds turned out in the capital’s centre to press the government to provide more beds, staff and funding to ease the problems facing the health service.
“Keep your hands off our NHS,” they chanted as they began marching from near the UCL Hospital towards Downing Street.
Among the demonstrators at the march was Jamie, a disability rights advocate who was attending the march in his wheelchair.
He was injured in a serious car crash 21 years ago and said the NHS had saved his life.
