With NHS services under threat across the UK, this episode takes a look at a campaign that overturned the government’s plans to close a vital London hospital, as well as the insights that experience can offer other activists.
I spoke to Dr Tony O'Sullivan about the secrets of the "Save Lewisham Hospital" campaign's successes.
Dr O’Sullivan covers:
how many different sectors of the local community contributed their skills, ideas and energy to the campaign;
how the group secured national media coverage;
how they raised funds to challenge the government in the High Court;
how the campaign has evolved to protect vital services in Lewisham and other areas of the country.
