Campaigners will be heading from Manchester to Parliament today, to ask ministers to halt plans to sell-off Manchester's Ambulance Patient Transport Service to bus company Arriva, who are set to take over the service from 2013.
Over 14,000 people have signed a petition against the move.
The Shadow Health Secretary, Andy Burnham MP, has urged the Government to pause plans to privatise Manchester's Ambulance Patient Transport Service.
He said: "I want the health secretary to push the pause button on this issue and consider changes to the ambulance service within the context of any potential changes to the A&E network and emergency services in Greater Manchester more generally".
