Organiser Netti Pearson said: “The idea is to raise awareness of the threat to acute services at North Devon District Hospital, to garner support for the event in Barnstaple the following week while showing that we in Ilfracombe are also ‘Seeing Red’.”
Despite a quote that ‘there are no red lines on services’ by Dr Alison Diamond of Northern Devon Healthcare Trust, campaigners are keen to prove there are red lines that should protect local services.
They will march along the High Street to the Tyrrell Hospital, where a red line will be placed along the boundary.
Netti added: “All are welcome to join us and we’d like them to wear red.
“If shop windows and any window visible from the road can be dressed in red then that will help our aim.”
