Organisers expecting 200 to attend Trafford Hospital protest march

The march against threatened closures of Trafford General Hospital's A&E and Intensive Care departments is due to start now, followed by a rally at 1pm. Trafford NHS says that the hospital's small size means changes will have to be made in order to keep it financially viable.
