💙💙 VOTE FOR THE NHS 💙💙

April 2017

VOTE FOR OUR NHS
Dear Supporter,
  • Longer waits to see our GPs
  • Huge cuts to health services
  • Bed shortages
  • Demoralised staff
  • Underfunding
Over the last few weeks the NHS has risen to the top of voters' concerns as people consider how to vote.

Save Our Hospitals is a community-based non-party political campaign group, but we are asking our supporters to think carefully about the future of the NHS before you vote on June 8. It's your vote, so it's your decision ... but please think NHS!

Our NHS is under attack as never before. It is time to call a stop to cuts, closures, downgrading, rationing and privatisation. Our NHS cannot stand 5 more years of these attacks.

PUBLIC MEETING

FACTS FROM THE FRONTLINE

COME AND HEAR HOW NHS STAFF ARE FACING UNPRECEDENTED DEMANDS AS THEY TRY TO PROVIDE SAFE CARE FOR PATIENTS
See details - venue, time etc - below


HOW YOU CAN HELP
  • You could help us at our stalls and with our leaflet distribution - see details in dates for diary
  • You could leaflet in your local streets for the public meeting (30th May)
  • You could leaflet in your local streets after the public meeting with our 'Vote for NHS' leaflet
  • You could put a SAVE CHARING CROSS poster in your window.
If you are able to do any of the above, please contact us at scxandh@gmail.com

AND:
  • You could ask canvassers or candidates the following questions:
    • Will you publicly support the retention of Charing Cross and Ealing Hospitals as full acute hospitals with a Type 1 (blue light) A&E and a full complement of beds and specialist staff?
    • Will you stand up for health and social care, demanding an end to the current freeze on NHS budgets and cuts in social care and a major reinvestment in the NHS as a publicly funded, publicly provided and publicly accountable service available to all?
    • Mental health provision has been badly neglected. Will your party commit to significantly increase overall spending on mental health, nationally and in NW London, immediately?
    • In NW London there is a significant shortage of staff because of living costs. Will your party end the cap on NHS pay increases, restore NHS bursaries for nurses and health professionals, and legislate safe staffing levels for healthcare?
