Highlights of Helen Grant's Pram Push Protest with TV's Geoff Clark at Maidstone Hospital. Helen pushed a pram for 6 hours over 17 miles in protest at the downgrading of Maternity Services on 27/9/09 to highlight and oppose the effects of the decision by Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells NHS trust.

A convoy of lorries as long as a freight train turned up at the start of the Pram push at Maidstone Hospital, festooned with banners and driven by furious Dads and their families to demonstrate the strength of feeling across the community. TV presenter Geoff Clark came with his loud hailer and counted the crowd down to the start of the push at 9.00am. All along the way people came out of their homes to applaud and wave on the entourage, with passing drivers tooting their horns in support.

Helen Grant is an executive Committee member of M.A.S.H. (Maidstone Action for Services in Hospital) - a cross party lobbying group that has been campagning against the downgrading of hospital services at Maidstone since June 2008.

Please sign the petition at www.helengrant.org that Helen Grant will deliver to the Shadow Health Minister Andrew Lansley MP, current Health Minister Andy Burnham MP and the chief executive of Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust.
