  • Protect our children from dirty air in LEEDS
    Air pollution is a public health crisis, with illegal and harmful levels of air pollution across the UK. We need national and local government to act to clean up our air and make our towns and cities a healthier place to live for everyone but especially for babies and children. Air pollution affects us all, from when we are in the womb through to old age. It is linked to premature births and can stunt lung growth in children. Air pollution can trigger heart attacks and strokes, worsens asthma attacks and causes lung cancer. Babies, children and older people are more vulnerable to the impacts of air pollution. We need the Council, with the support of national government, to take urgent action to clean up our air to protect the health of children and babies.

  • Stop the closure of Sydenham Green health clinic
    We the undersigned object to the closure of the sexual health clinic in Sydenham Green Health Centre We believe this will mean difficulties because of the extra travel distance, increased cost and inconvenience for users of the clinic who are predominantly local and many under 25yrs.Users may have caring responsibilities, a limit on the time they have to attend due to work and family commitments and accessing public transport can be very demanding if not impossible for these users, especially in winter. Lower socio –economic groups will be disadvantaged by these changes as will the groups mentioned below. According to the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust the target groups for this service are quote” young people, men who have sex with men, black and minority ethnic groups and the vulnerable within the community. This is an outrageous attack on such groups in our community. Making potential users travel further may deter them from attending altogether. The clinic at Sydenham Green provides free contraceptives for young people. The impact of the closure may be a rise in untreated STI’s and unwanted pregnancies. The closure of Sydenham Green will also have an impact on the sexual health clinics in the other areas expected to take up the shortfall increasing the workload of the Waldron, Hawstead Road and Downham clinics. Waiting times will then increase at these clinics. The increased use of on line testing moves away from the confidentiality essential to users of these services and putting off users is a false economy which will not ultimately save the NHS money. This is primarily a cost saving exercise by the CCG .We ask for adequate budgets and resources and a reversal of this decision. The CCG website states ”We do all we can to ensure that local people get the most accessible services possible”. We do not agree.

  • No 'One Size Fits all ' for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
    Every year Mental Health issues affect the lives of 1 in 4 people in the U.K. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and its resultant mental health issues are a silent killer in the military and especially in men. My son is currently in hospital having been diagnosed with P.T.S.D. Dan's Story:- https://www.gofundme.com/2q5p6z-hadrians-wall-walk?member=557154 More than 6,000 people die by suicide every year in the U.K. Nearly 80% of that 6,000 are men and male suicides are now at their highest since 2001. I ask that the medication programmes provided for P.T.S.D. are supplemented by therapies which routinely include: Acupuncture : https://www.acupuncture.org.uk/public-content/public-pr-press-releases/6374-acupuncture-study-sees-remarkable-success-rate-in-veterans-with-ptsd.html https://www.talktotrinity.com/2016/11/28/can-acupuncture-relieve-symptoms-of-ptsd/ Counselling : https://www.bacp.co.uk/about-therapy/trauma-and-ptsd/ E.M.D.R. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing : https://thepsychologist.bps.org.uk/volume-27/edition-7/emdr-more-just-therapy-ptsd E.F.T. Emotional Freedom Self-help Techniques: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2540469/Alternative-tapping-therapy-favoured-Lily-Allen-used-NHS-treat-anxiety-depression.html NO ONE SIZE FITS ALL We are all individual and respond differently to different treatments. If the full range of therapies were to be on offer, to supplement the medication provided, it would give more choice for health professionals working hard to devise treatment programmes and could hasten recovery and cut down on side effects. Would it not be something to consider that when military personnel return from their 'tour of duty' that these alternative therapies are offered as part of their 'normalisation programme'. A joint funded initiative between the N.H.S. and the Ministry of Defence? We can't put a price on good Mental Health. Currently it would seem that we do in some areas. Could this be a false economy long term? Is it not time to put the individual at the centre of their care, as all Social Care Legislation stipulates, and work together to achieve the best possible outcome for the person, their friends and family and maybe for the budget in the long term? Thank you for reading and hopefully signing this petition I truly hope with all my heart that it will help to instigate a change of thinking, save lives, lessen suffering and distress.

  • Save the Forward Centre
    The Forward Centre was purpose built 35 years ago as a base for adults with physical disabilities to meet others who faced similar problems and encourage each other to try things they had never thought of doing Many of the activities require specially trained staff to assist people with a wide range of disabilities often caused by accidental injuries or long term illness The Social Work Services are having to make cuts of £100,000 to their annual budget and the only way open to them is buildings or staff. If the staffing levels are reduced the service to the members will suffer so they have decided to demolish a perfectly sound building

  • Average Speed Cameras for Grampound
    Grampound has had to endure speeding motorists for far too long in its 30mph speed limit. There have been many incidents of near misses between vehicles and pedestrians trying to cross the road and it's only a matter of time before there is a fatality. The noise and air pollution produced by vehicles speeding through the village has become unbearable. Residents conducted their own Traffic Monitoring Survey and a third to a half of all vehicles counted were speeding with HGV's and Motorcyclists offending the most. A mother and baby very nearly became fatalities in January 2018 when a speeding motorist left the road in the centre of Grampound, shattering bollards, mounting the pavement and crashing into a residents wall before spinning around in the opposite direction and coming to a halt. The Mother and baby sometimes walk down that side of the road, but fortunately that day she crossed the road and walked on the opposite side and witnessed the horror unfold before her eyes, She quickly realised what could have happened and was badly shaken up by the experience. We have over 10,000 vehicles pass through the village on a daily basis and it's only a matter of time before someone becomes a statistic and this is exactly what we want to avoid at all costs. According to UK Motorists.com, Speed cameras can only be located in places where there is a history of serious accidents, or evidence of a speeding problem, or where a local community has requested them. We don't just request them, we demand them.

  • Treatment for SMA type 1
    Spinal Muscular Atrophy is a rare genetic life limiting disease which affects infants and without treatment the prognosis is very poor. Biogen have developed a new treatment called Nusinersen which is giving incredibly promising results in children who have been receiving this new treatment. The treatment is recognised and access allowed in 20 European countries and others throughout the World, NICE however, have decided not to fund this treatment and it is imperative that they reconsider their decision to give all those affected families a chance.

  • Indian flood
    People are trapped in their own homes because of the water rising. It has got to point that people can’t even have food to eat, kids have been starving for the whole day, because the waters are to high to get food. Many people have even lost their homes because of the water eroding the foundations away from the walls. Many people are missing because of the flooding and rock slides. The water has reached up to the second level of the house and people are left with inches away from death, left with no hope.
