Members of Islington Keep Our NHS Public (IKONP) joined NHS nurses on picket lines and demonstrations around London in December and January.
The strikes, calling for fair pay and better conditions for patients, took place at various NHS trusts. Strikers at St Thomas’s on 15 December 2022 (above) drew huge support from passersby.
Nurses at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children took to the streets to defend the NHS.
