Planning is getting under way for the 999 – Answer the call for your NHS rally outside the Conservative party conference in Manchester on 29 September.

General secretary Dave Prentis called for the TUC to organise the rally at the union’s national delegate conference in June and UNISON is leading the way in bringing together unions in the north west to start planning.

The initial planning meeting this week heard that an assembly point, march route and rally point have already been agreed with Greater Manchester police.

The rally will form up at Liverpool Road in the city centre from 11am and march off at 12.30pm. It will them march round the city centre, including two sides of the conference centre, to a rally at Whitworth Park, starting at 2pm.

Our campaign: 999 – answer the call for the NHS
