Members of the Royal College of Nursing and Unison took part in a demonstration against job cuts at Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Huntingdon on Saturday.

This was the third rally in support of the hospital, the first in October last year attracted over 1,000 people from the town.

But with the hospital all but safe and Hinchingbrooke claiming any job loses would not involve compulsory redundancies, the turnout at the weekend attracted about 50 people.

The unions have also complained of low morale in parts of the hospital and have urged new chief executive Mark Millar to spend more time in medical departments and on wards to reassure staff about their future. Picture: HUNTS POST 44336
