At the Campaign's Representative Conference on 26th April one of the
activities agreed on was to lobby the Dáil for a decent public health
service on the occasion of Brian Cowen's elevation to Taoiseach on
Wednesday 7th May. The lobby will take place from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. in
front of Leinster House, Kildare Street.

We invite you and your organisation to participate. Bring your banner
and placards.

The Campaign for A Decent Public Health Service march in Dublin on
29th March united trade unions, patients' and hospital groups, health
professionals and people from various regions in a demand for a health
service accessible to all in need.

Since then there have been more scandals and a determined programme of
disimprovement, cutbacks and hospital downgrades by the government and
the HSE. They are determined, but so are we. In the next while we
shall be publicising our timetable of major campaign activities for
the coming months.
