- Health Secretary and Hastings and Rye MP
- United Kingdom
The Government is planning the biggest re-organisation of the NHS since it began in 1948.
Everyone wants to see the NHS improve but not at the expense of its founding principles - good patient care, free at the point of need, not the ability to pay.
Whilst these changes take place health services in Hastings and Rother are left in limbo; with wards closing and services, like our maternity services threatened.
The current reforms are opposed by the Royal College of GPs, the Royal College of Nurses, the Patients Association and many other groups.
But this is bigger than party politics: it is about protecting our local health service and stopping the creeping privatization of the NHS, cuts to the Conquest Hospital and loss of health services.
We the undersigned ask that the Health Secretary and local Tory MP, Amber Rudd to drop the health reform bill and program of cuts imposed on the Conquest hospital; that they spend the £2billion put aside for rehashing the NHS on nurses, doctors, protecting frontline services (like our local maternity services) and keeping wards open instead.
