The TUC Austerity Bus has arrived in Weston for a rally organised by the union, Unison.
Many of its members work at Weston General Hospital and say they are concerned at proposals to privatise it. The hospital has struggled with debt and new methods of funding are being considered.
A family event is being held at Weston-super-Mare Football Club today to highlight the concerns and allow people a say about the Government's wider austerity measures.
Anyone can record a video message on board the Austerity Bus. It's already been in Bridgwater, next it's Weston's Bournville Estate, near the hospital, before it heads off to Bristol.
