• Gynaecological Cancers and other women's health issues should NOT be treated on Maternity Units.
    Women's health issues can be very traumatic to deal with in terms of the emotional impact procedures such as hysterectomy can have. This can be worsened substantially when they have to try to do so in Maternity Units surrounded by others who are pregnant. Whilst the treatment itself may be gratefully received, this practice can worsen the impact on their mental state, slow their recovery and ultimately, cost the NHS more in the longer term. It is insensitive and inhumane. Woman are people, not just bodies and should be treated such.

  • Stop Boots over-charging for vital health treatments
    With the rise in demand for healthcare, and tight funding, the NHS is facing an existential challenge already. It should not need to face the rapacious greed of US-owned pharmaceutical companies.

  • Keep Manchester Diabetes Centre on Hathersage Road
    Many of the patients who attend Manchester Diabetes Centre have mobility issues. Not all but a considerable amount. Enforcing wheelchair users who have become accustomed to the large car park and one tier access are going to struggle in a busy hospital environment. The staff at the centre are always a constant, which gives people suffering with chronic illnesses some comfort and less feeling of anxiety.

  • Prostate Screening
    Prostate cancer kills more men than women suffering from breast cancer. It is about time this discrimination was addressed. Early treatment can save lives and it isn't just old men who get it, but young men with with families to raise.

  • Stop the inequality that exists in pain management in the NHS
    Pain management is an important part of treating people with chronic pain so that they can continue living their lives and functioning on a day to day basis. My mum has fibromyalgia and a degenerative spinal condition and neck. She has been offered very little help on the NHS but she was receiving steroid injections every three months that enabled her to walk again and function on a daily basis. Her commissioning group in Nottingham have now decided that they will no longer offer this service and she has received a letter informing her that if she wants to continue receiving the treatment she will have to pay £550 a time. If she lived in Derbyshire she could continue to receive this treatment for FREE. My mum is 73, she worked all of her life and has paid into the NHS and taken very little out. It is completely unfair to expect my mum who only has her pension to live on to find this money when other people are receiving the treatment for FREE. I understand that the NHS doesn't have money for everything but these injections have been keeping my mum out of a wheelchair and able to walk, able to exercise and able to live her life without the constant pain that she has to endure on a daily basis. The only alternative she is ever given is opiate pain killers which are known to be addictive and do nothing but make her feel ill. Please help me to raise awareness of the inequality that exists in the services that are offered for those who need chronic pain management and campaign for the Nottingham commissioning group to reinstate these services and offer some hope for those with chronic pain to continue receiving treatment for FREE. Health care should not be a postcode lottery. The government have caused this lottery by allowing local areas to commission their own services that they feel will benefit their areas this is causing massive inequalities in health care. The government should ensure that all patients have access to services regardless of where they live. I therefore call upon the government to end the postcode lottery that exists in health care and ensure that everyone has the same access to services.

  • Check every child for tongue tie at birth.
    The Scottish Government promote breastfeeding as being best for baby and provide literature about positioning and attachment but when a baby has a tongue tie sometimes no amount of repositioning can help the excruciating pain it causes for the mother and tongue tied babies also often struggle to transfer milk. As babies need fed very often a tongue tie can cause terrible anguish for the mother and make her give up. Tongue ties are becoming increasingly common and a simple procedure is all it takes to remedy them so all babies should be checked at birth.

  • Lancashire County Council withdraws any intention of awarding the contract To Virgin Care
    This will cost local Lancashire Health Trusts £2.08mil for a nominal saving. It is important to reduce outsourcing because private providers owe a duty to their shareholders, as well as patients and may therefore seek to hide behind principles of ’commercial confidentiality’. Private providers are not subject to the Freedom of Information law in the same way that NHS organisations are
