With His Lord and Ladyship still on what the latter lamentably calls a ‘vacay’ the faithful retainers at Leaky Towers have been asked to publicise the following in their absence.
Firstly we’ve been asked to give 2 local petitions some exposure:
Dear friends of the NHS
This is to remind you of our public meeting in Birkenhead on Thursday 7th September.
We’re pleased to say that we will be joined by national campaigner Steve Carne talking about the STPs and NHS reinstatement.
The need to share information and alert the public is ever more urgent. Please circulate this message and the attachment. The NHS is on its knees and we need to fight desperately to save it.
Please see the revised notice for the meeting, which is attached, and this welcome news below from the Latest edition of Private Eye. The STPs are now called in true George Orwell style ‘sustainability and transformation partnerships’. ‘And’, by the way, is the only word in that title which does not mean the opposite of what it says:
· ‘Sustainable’ = slashed budgets and services.
· ‘Transformed’ = cut, demoralised and damaged beyond recognition.
· ‘Partnership’ = developed in secret, operating in secret, condemned by local councils, a total lack of public/patient consultation, and the only happy partners are Richard Branson and a series of US ‘healthcos’.
The STPs must be stopped, opposed, reversed and the damage undone.
We look forward to seeing you at the meeting, to which ALL Wirral councillors and MPs are being invited.
Best wishes on behalf of DONHS
