Liz McInnes invited Ed Miliband up to Middleton where he gave a rousing speech to a large crowd of Labour supporters and passers-by at the Mainway shops.
Danny Meredith, a local nurse, introduced Liz as ‘the candidate who will fight for our NHS’ to large cheers.
Liz McInnes, Labour’s candidate for Heywood and Middleton, said:
“I’ve worked for the NHS for 33 years and I’ve seen what the Tory-led Government has done to it over the past four years.
“A vote for me next Thursday is a vote for the NHS.”
Ed Miliband, Leader of the Labour Party, said:
“In just seven days’ time the people of Heywood and Middleton have a chance to cast a vote for the NHS.
“You know our NHS - the greatest symbol of what we can achieve together as a country – is not just under threat, under this government it is being privatised and fragmented.
“Next Thursday the people of this constituency have a chance to send an NHS worker to Parliament to tell the Tories the NHS is not safe in their hands.”
Ed and Liz then went doorknocking in Middleton and stopped by a local school.
