Hundreds are expected to march in Nottingham today in defence of NHS services.

Marchers will meet at the Forest Recreation Ground, before heading to Old Market Square to hold a rally.

Since we last met in Nottingham we have seen a continuation of a National Health Service under strain.

Longer waiting times, queuing ambulances and threats of cuts and closures have increased.

Prime Minister David Cameron has praised his party's record on the NHS, saying that instead of broken promises on funding, he's kept them.

He said: "We've increased [NHS] spending by over 12.7bn pounds ...We got rid of 20,000 bureaucrats in the NHS and put that money into 9,000 more doctors and 7,000 more nurses."
