Monday, 13th October
There was a four hour strike today by thousands of NHS workers, including nurses, midwives and ambulance staff.
They would like a 1% pay rise. The government says this will cost too much.
Urgent and emergency care was unaffected, and there have been reports that staff left the picket lines to attend to patients.
The little ambulance was taken from a child’s (Julia Lena Morell) colouring book that I bought from a charity shop in Barcelona. I will be posting more about this shop at a later date. It is on my ‘To Do’ list.
