• Build a decent playground in the centre of Ashington, Northumberland
    It's sad to see the playground and bowling green have been knocked down recently at the demolished Institute and Leisure Centre, as well as the beautiful park that was demolished on the Peoples Park field many years ago. The children are in desperate need for a free place to play with swings and a slide. Not every family can afford to pay for the new Leisure Centre facilities that are currently surrounded by a derelict building site and is a danger to children on the busy roundabout.

  • Safe Road Crossing
    Wester Ceddens Road links local residents to 4 primary schools, 1 secondary school, 2 nurseries, local shops and 2 churches. During term time the council provides 4 school crossing patrol personnel however, outside of school drop off, lunch and pick up times residents risk their lives attempting to cross Wester Cleddens Road. Furthermore, numerous housing developments have been built on and around Wester Cleddens Road which has increased traffic and the population.

  • Saving Boston Hospital Children's ward
    The Children's ward at Boston's Pilgrim Hospital is under threat of temporary closure because of staff shortages. As the largest county in England, with it's population spread over a large area of mostly agricultural land it is imperative we keep this vital children's ward open. Grantham Hospital is also scheduled to close, so where are all the children going to go? This could put lives of children at risk! Telling parents they simply have to drive further is not acceptable. Not all parents can drive, or have access to transport over long distances. What happens when the other hospital children's wards are all full? Surely this will just increase the pressure on other hospitals which are already at breaking point. Will children be refused treatment if no beds are available? As the population is expanding why are essential services shrinking? What impact will this also have on the maternity ward, and children born requiring treatment or special care.

  • Save Clifton Hill Sports Centre
    I have always regarded Clifton Hill sports centre as an asset to the city and understand its importance within the community. The facility has attained excellent user numbers over the years and its closure would not be in the best interests of the city The centre closed in March due to a roof leak and a burst pipe, but the council won't commit to a reopening. Help the city get its much loved Clifton Hill sports centre back in service! It has left an irreplaceable void in peoples lives. It was a real community hub used by all ages from toddlers to pensioners and all socio economic groups. Exeter is bidding to be the UK's most 'active city' and so closing the centre is insanity! Come on Exeter City Council tell us it will reopen - it was only some snow through the roof and a few burst pipes!

    This another important service to Coventry people that is stealthy been made private. This service is vital to local people but also needs to be kept public and not fall into the hands of private companies such as Virgin or Care UK.

Please take the time to sign this important petition which we plan to hand into the CRCCG by the end of May. Many thanks from all at Coventry Keep Our NHS Public (COVKONP) campaign group.

  • Abolish GP cash incentives in Enfield
    When you visit your GP, you want to know that the only thing on their mind is giving you the care you need. But our NHS is struggling because the government hasn’t given it the money it needs. It means NHS bosses are looking for any opportunity to save money. But setting financial incentives and arbitrary targets for GPs simply doesn’t make sense. And when it comes to the care our families get when we’re sick, it’s not right to force doctors to compromise. The Royal College of GPs, and medical experts have raised the alarm about the cash incentive schemes. The head of the Family Doctor Association said they’re a “serious dereliction of duty”. The Royal College of GPs said "Cash incentives based on how many referrals GPs make have no place in the NHS, and frankly, it is insulting to suggest otherwise." Tell local health bosses that patients’ needs should always come before profit!

  • Prevent any selling site allowing animals
    Many animals, particularly dogs and cats, are offered free to good home on these sites. They are often used in dog fighting rings as live bait, in order to train the fighting dogs. Some of these dogs are stolen and they have owners desperately searching for them. Many are sold for little money or given free, by people who want to find a good home for them. They are often duped into handing them over, to what they believe to be the perfect home. Often this is not the case. Selling sites should have a moral obligation to not allow animal to be given or sold on their sites. Sadly this is no the case, we would like the Animal health and welfare board to look at this, then put measures in place so that this can no longer happen. Sites MUST be responsible for what people sell on there, there is even a language code used in order to sell fighting dogs and acquire bait for them. It has to stop

  • Fund care for Tom
    My son Tom is a 28 year old young man with an acquired brain injury. The injury occurred in 2007 as the result of an infection just 4 days after his 18th birthday. He was doing well in his A levels, and then this awful tragedy happened. For the past nine years, he has been supported for care and accommodation by Continuing Healthcare (CHC) funding. Tom's condition means that he needs 2-1 care during daytime. Although his needs have become greater in that time -- his epileptic seizures are more pronounced and frequent -- his funding has suddenly been withdrawn. Tom is very much at risk of harm without this care: he cannot look after himself, and his behaviour is often challenging and unpredictable. A hurried and insufficiently attentive review has judged him ineligible for healthcare funding, because although his needs are 'High', they are not deemed 'Severe' -- even though his 'Behaviour' and 'Cognition' clearly meet the panel's own 'Severe' CHC criteria. None of Tom's carers or family agree with this decision but our responses and appeals have been ignored. Please help by urging NHS Coastal West Sussex Clinical Commissioning Group to change their decision and continue to fund Tom, as they have been doing for the last nine years. Tom is so vulnerable and really needs your support.

  • Save Formby Clinic
    Formby is set to expand faster than it has since the 1970's due to Sefton Council's push for 1100 new homes in Formby. Despite this we have seen our health provision stretched to breaking point with the Hightown Doctors Surgery now becoming part of Formby Chapel Lane Practice. Formby cannot afford to lose any more health care provision, losing this vital service will simply put more pressure on an already stretched service, in the face an aging population in Formby.
