"'s risen like a zombie in the guise of STP"

Leaflet your street?

We need to spread the health warnings on the dangers the Sustainability & Transformation (aka cuts & closures plan) across our communities across NW London. Loads more people would get the message if everyone was able to take a few leaflets and simply drop them in the letterboxes down their street or in the tearoom at work. If you're able to take a few to distribute please get in touch. (Attaching the final version our STP leaflet in place of earlier version in last email.)

Brent STP Public Engagement Event

Some Brent residents have taken a rather unusual tone to persuade neighbours to attend this important meeting.
"THE RESURRECTION MEN: SHAPING A HEALTHIER FUTURE REBORN. Local campaigners fought for five years against the cuts and closures that the NHS bosses tried to sell to us in the guise of Shaping a Healthier Future. We thought it was totally discredited, dead and buried, but it's risen like a zombie in the guise of STP - sounds like a sexually transmitted disease, but it stands for Sustainability and Transformation Plans. Another set of jargon for some of the same old cuts and closures" 
STP Public Engagement Event Mon 26th Sept 6.30pm Brent Civic Centre Grand Hall Engineers Way, Wembley HA9 0FJ

Imperial Board Meeting

Media interest in Imperial chair Sir Richard Sykes' admission that the trust is over worked, under funded, over stretched and under performing continues to gain publicity. There's a chance to continue the debate at Imperial's Board Meeting.

Birmingham Protest

We'll be meeting more brummies next Sunday at Birmingham's Unwelcome the Tory Conference Protest".

Coach to Protest Outside Tory Party Conference leaving Ealing Broadway Station 9am Sun 2nd Oct let us know if you'd like a ticket.

Stop Press - Junior Drs

We've just heard that the Junior Drs industrial action has been called off because of concerns about patient safety. We echo the words of BMA Junior Dr Chair Ellen McCourt who says:-
" We still oppose the imposition of the contract and are now planning a range of other actions in order to resist it, ........We hope the government will seize this opportunity to engage with junior doctors and listen to the range of voices from across the NHS raising concerns about doctors' working lives and the impact of the contract on patient care."

Regards AD (SOH secretary)
