Campaigners protest proposed changes to Kent's stroke services

Protesters gathered in Ramsgate as part of their fight to save the stroke unit at the Queen Elizabeth Queen Mother hospital in Margate.

The NHS has proposed creating three large specialist centres in Kent - replacing the current six smaller hospital units - to provide round the clock care.

Campaigners say patients will have to travel to Ashford for treatment which they say will be detrimental to their care and even life threatening. Jenna Verdicchio has this report.
