The Government is planning the biggest reorganisation of the NHS since it began in 1948. It is unnecessary, unwanted and damaging.
For Tower Hamlets it means massive upheaval – at the same time as the NHS is asked to meet huge cuts targets there is a proposed merger between our hospital services at the Royal London and Newham and Whipps Cross, and primary care commissioning is turned upside down, with the abolition of our award winning Primary Care Trust.
We are proud of the Labour record on the NHS, and of Labour’s investment in the new Royal London hospital building and innovative services such as the Barkantine centre. We will fight to keep vital local services in Tower Hamlets, and fight to save the NHS.
Tower Hamlets GPs have written to David Cameron to ask him to drop his Bill. This weekend the people of Tower Hamlets will come together in a mass day of action to let David Cameron know that we want to see this botched top down reorganisation of the NHS stopped.
Please let me know if you can spare any time at all, even half an hour, to help out on one of our street stalls. You’ll be able to find us – we’ll have red balloons, stickers, petitions and leaflets. Jim Fitzpatrick, Rushanara Ali, John Biggs and councillors will all be out campaigning to save the NHS.
Saturday 3rd March, 11am – 2pm
Street stalls in:
Bethnal Green road – outside Tescos
Whitechapel road – outside the tube
Chrisp Street market.
We are also holding a short rally, with speeches at Chrisp st at 12.15 – the media have been invited.
Please do get involved – the more people volunteer, the more signatures we can get to let Andrew Lansley know that Tower Hamlets opposes his botched NHS reorganisation. Email rachaelsaunders(@)yahoo.co.uk if you can help out, or text 07799 417580.
