Published on behalf of DONHS Wirral are details of upcoming meetings and the following message :
We will be inviting Wirral councillors and all four Wirral MPs.
The focus of the meeting will be the local STP – now officially called a ‘sustainability and transformation partnership’
Some partnership! It doesn’t include patients , STPs generally are not engaging or collaborating with GPs
(let alone the public), and 80% of councillors thought STPs were “not fit for purpose” and “prioritised cost-cutting and closing hospitals over preventing illness”.
The reality of the STP is the dismnatling of our NHS. Campaigners have been warning about this for years. Every day we see the headlines.
Wirral Council voted overwhelmingly in December to oppose the local version of ‘slash, trash and privatise’ and to write a letter of protest to the government. We have no evidence that the letter was sent or a reply received. And now the leader of the Council says “I don’t see any sign that STPs are going away,…” Some opposition!…
Come and join us – and join our campaign to share information about what’s happening and to OPPOSE the STP.
(Talking of opposition : did you write to your councillors and MPs as we urged you last month? Where do you send them? It’s easy – simply click here and adapt the draft letter attached . Thank you! http://www.writetothem.com/
