  • 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

  • Urinary Tract Infections tested for and prescribed for by a pharmacist instead of a GP.
    It saves the patient the hassle of waiting for an appointment or call back from the GP for a prescription of antibiotics. This would also save the NHS the cost and time of a GP testing and prescribing for a UTI. Many who have suffered a UTI before know and understand the symptoms but can end up painfully waiting to be treated. Balancing work, family commitments and your health can be difficult and is made more difficult when worrying about missing the call back from the GP or making sure you get your prescription into the pharmacy before closing. A UTI can be very debilitating and this could be dramatically improved by allowing patients antibiotic prescription treatment over the counter.

  • Take action to guarantee GP registration for everyone in Edinburgh
    The GP system in Edinburgh is falling apart and the GP surgeries are coping the only way they can - by limiting registrations. But everyone has the right to be registered with a GP. Restricting GP services could lead to more people self-diagnosing and self-medicating. Many may have to resort to going to A&E even though they should not need to. NHS Lothian needs to step in here. They need to recruit more GPs and regulate the behaviour of the GP surgeries.

  • We do not consent to Smart Water Meters
    Haringey residents have six concerns about the Smart Meter installation programme: 1. Not being consulted prior to installation; 2. Not compulsory (?); 3. Penalise poor people who live in crowded homes; 4. Risk to the health of humans, animals, pollinators, trees and plants; "10. The World Health Organisation’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) categorised RF EMFs as a Possible CARCINOGEN (Group 2B), the same as lead, DDT, chloroform & methylmercury (31 May 2011)". "11. Dr Andrew Goldsworthy’s research warned that electromagnetically-conditioned water flow could strip lead from pipes (after firstly removing limescale) leading to lead poisoning. (1998, 2007, 2012 and 2016)". 5. Surveillance of water, gas and electric usage; and 6. Security risk through (nuclear) electromagnetic pulse attacks, space weather and hacking (“cybercrime”). Our focus is on Smart Water Meters but not exclusively. Full details about the Stop Smart Meters Haringey campaign can be found on our website below. This petition will be initially delivered to Haringey Council. The target is 2,200+

  • Fracking Referendum
    House prices are already falling behind other areas of the country and the already crumbling roads cant cope with the extra traffic. The environment will be destroyed and the money will not remain in the Fylde and maybe not in the UK. A study shows that the increase in employment is dwarfed by the loss of agriculture jobs not to mention the reduction in the tourism industry.

  • Support Healthy Eating: Two Sides and No Dessert Please
    It is healthier, avoids wasting the desert, and gives people the healthy option some expect with a meal deal, a main and two sides, denied by the current system, which gives you an incompete main course and a desert you don't want/ shouldn't eat instead. Another of our 5 a day, less waste, healthier customers, better value at no cost except reprogramming a computer (sides are already labelled). So a better offer all round. Why wouldn't you? Cheap does not have to be unhealthy by design, there is a better alternative.

  • PIP Justice for Mental Health Sufferers
    People changing from DLA to PIP are being robbed of their entitlement because they do not have a " cognitive impairment" or " physical" reason why they cannot understand what people say to them, or can't cook a meal , or can't walk 200 yards, or can't plan and execute a journey by themselves.

  • STOP ADDED WATER TO FOOD PRODUCTS.
    I get really annoyed with industries that add water to food. It seems to me it is only beneficial to the manufacturer in that weight adds to the price of food, also water does not add to the flavour of food either, it detracts what we taste from it. ie bacon and chicken have less flavour, horrible white bits float around when cooking bacon, etc. Why should I have to pay more money for meat without water, when water I feel should not be added in the first place. It makes no sense, and is of no benefit to the consumer.
