Save our Hospitals is phrase being used by protestors due to meet in Norbiton on Saturday over NHS spending cuts. 

They're rallying to voice their discontent over cuts to local hospital budgets. 

The cuts could see a closure of maternity units, A&E Departments and children's wards across South West London. 

The Government's "Better Services, Better Value" review is expected to announce recommendations for Epsom and St Helier, Croydon, Kingston and St Georges on Thursday. 

Richard Donnelly from Kingston, Keep our NHS Public says the plans are a recipe for disaster: "We want people to come out and support the NHS, to support every local hospital."

He added: "We need to stop politicians from playing one off against the other, this isn't a question on whether they should shut down an A&E in Epsom or Kingston, the community across South West London has to be united in saying, we want to keep all our NHS services and we don't want to downgrade them."
