  • Refuse the government 1% rise for NHS care and nursing staff
    We are seeing more people who are losing heart and morale about working in a job that most feel should be rewarding. People go into the health industry to make a change, but they are being exploited to the very limit. We are struggling for staff in all areas and less are wanting to train due to being able to earn more in a supermarket than a hospital.

  • More NHS mental health hospitals need opening, not closing.
    When you're at a time where you're mentally distressed, to the point you need to be in hospital, knowing where you are plays a bigger role than you'd think. If you know you're up the road from your house, or a short bus ride away, it gives you peace of mind. You know you're family and friends will be able to visit you, and bring you things you might need. It also means you can have effective home leave before being discharged. Now imagine, you're being sent 100miles away from your home, to a place where you probably don't know anyone. What if no one in your family drives? You become alone and isolated, at a time where being around people who love you matters more than anything; but you're all alone instead. There are kids being sent far away! Some as young as 12. If you're far away, and you are in a unit where you can't use your mobile, how are you meant to stay in contact with friends? What if you're in that hospital for months? Having no familiarity makes you sink even lower. It is essential that more is done to improve the current bed crisis.

  • Fund the Cavell Centre, Peterborough
    Otherwise some people will die younger, some will not integrate with society, people at work will lose their jobs and effect local prosperity. Staff will not be able to work in a job they have trained hard to achieve. People will be at risk to themselves and others and will be unfairly accommodated in a police station. Remember, people with mental health problems are often highly skilled with a creative lateral thinking process.

  • PIP and Cystic Fibrosis
    Many people with long-term disabilities, lifelong illnesses and conditions have lost their financial support through the introduction of the PERSONAL INDEPENDENCE PAYMENT (PIP). Many people in England have to pay for their own prescriptions which is unfair on some of the most vulnerable members of our society, especially those who are unemployed because their illness or disability prevents them from doing so. I have Cystic Fibrosis and have to take up to 60-70 tablets a day to maintain my health. Without the financial support that was previously in place with DLA, I now have to pay for all my medication through my own pocket, as I have lost my entitlement to financial assistance like many more people that are in a similar position as myself. In Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland this is not the case as those with long-term disabilities or lifelong conditions do receive free prescriptions. The Conservative government need to offer us a compromise after implementing PIP, where the guidelines are too strict. So, what I am petitioning for is equality for the population of England to bring it into line with the rest of the United Kingdom.

  • Drug companies should contribute financially to give support for the elderly in social care
    It is unethical to profit from a very vulnerable, although massive percentage of the population, in the name of progress. Quality of life has to be a major contributory factor when people are kept alive and "well". How can society justify this unethical practice when all we can offer is a longer life (with the help of medicines) for a great deal of these people who often live in misery and isolation with at best, for many, a 15 minute call from a carer, which may be the only human contact they have on a daily basis, at worst no human contact for several days at a time? My elderly parents (both in their 90's) are fortunate, as they have 5 caring children, who assist in the domestic, shopping , transport, outings and upkeep of their home. Others are not so fortunate. We need to campaign to look at solutions to this ever growing challenge of making the elderly a target for government often directing their "blame" for the state of our health and social care services. They don't just need basic care, but recreation and socialisation to ensure a good quality of life. Ian Wright my local MP (Hartlepool) has ignored my email so please help with this campaign to raise awareness of this plight on behalf of our elderly population and get at least a debate in Parliament on this emotive issue. We owe it to them.

  • Helping the Homeless in swansea
    I have always had a passion for this but after this last week when actually met a homeless person at first I just gave some spare change but I found I could not walk off so I went back and asked them if they would like to come for a cup of coffee which they did thank god because it was freezing outside we ended up chatting in a café for hours and I found out lots about them. the fact is some people just need a little support and encouragement and they can pick themselves up again just by stopping to ask them if they wanted a coffee I actually made a friend and he may now even have a job lined for him my aim is to walk the streets of Swansea giving out warm clothing sleeping bags and bags of food and toiletries ect and just to talk to them and let them know people are listening and they do care this person really had effect on me and I want to carry on helping people on the streets everyone deserves a change help me give it to them

  • More SEN Training for teachers and TA'S in schools
    This very important because we need to help our children cope in society, prepare our children for a happy and meaningful life. My daughter is 12 years old, though out her primary school days struggled with going to school, crying a lot, her anxiety levels were through the roof. Only when my daughter was in year 4 the school had noticed my daughter had communication problems I was never told about until year 5. When my daughter was 3 years old I had taken to the GP, she was very violent so our GP referred my daughter over to the community paediatric services I got my local MP involved. After all those years of stress, anxiety, we finally received a outcome, on the 6th Dec 2016 my daughter was finally diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

  • Stop the Closure of South West Community Hospitals
    It's being recommended that four cottage hospitals - Dartmouth, Paignton, Ashburton and Bovey Tracey - in South Devon are to close. At a time when there is a shortage of hospital beds and lack of alternative care arrangements for patients ready for discharge from major hospitals in the South West this decision is perverse and needs to be challenged
