• Give us back our GP surgery
    The situation in our village Surgery REDBOURN Health Centre has become a massive problem since amalgamating with other surgeries in St Albans - The Lodge Surgery. The outcome has been appalling, with less than average service. There are waiting times of up to 18 days for a telephone appointment and people are unable to speak to their regular GP who knows their health history.

  • Say no to the removal of Rugby's last ambulance
    West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) wishes to remove the last ambulance station in Rugby. Rugby is a rapidly expanding town and my family has direct experience of long waiting times in an emergency for the ambulance to arrive. With the removal of that ambulance the waiting times for people in this town will get worse and the risk is someone will needlessly lose their life while waiting for an ambulance. In addition Rugby is close to the M6 M1 A14 and A45 - all known for a high number of RTCs. We want the WMAS to stop this plan and think again. We want to be consulted on changes because we, the residents of the town, pay for this service through our taxes. We want to ensure there is adequate healthcare for the residents of our town. Our public services are being relentlessly degraded at a time the population is growing. Enough is enough.

  • Improve Mental Health Services in North Wales
    Many people are left to suffer in silence or tire of having to work to get the help they need to the point where they relent and stop asking for support this in turn could ultimately lead to further problems. Mental health problems are at an all time high as are suicide rates, so many lives which could be saved with the correct support.

  • Save the Tennant Canal
    The canal is an important reminder of the area's industrial heritage. It is also an environmental asset to the community giving residents easy access to an active travel route and a section is also part of the Wales Coastal Path. The canal at Jersey Marine is also one of the few places in the UK which is home to the rare fen raft spider and connects to two National Nature Reserves.

  • Urgent Paramedic support
    A lot of Health Care Professions are short of staff. They require a degree level of education, and all the professions are greatly enhanced by having a mix of school leavers and mature students undertaking the training. Since 2017/18, mature students have been encouraged to apply, by offering those that already have a degree, a 2nd student loan. I emphasise this is a loan, involving the student taking on a debt of £27,750 over the 3 year course. Since January 2020 there has been further encouragement to attract people into the Health Care Professions, including those undertaking their 1st degree and those undertaking their 2nd degree. This encouragement is in the form of a non-repayable ‘Learning Support Fund (LSF)’ to the tune of £5,000 p/a. Both the 2nd student loan and the LSF are available to those undertaking training in Nursing, Midwifery and many of the Allied Health Professions (AHP’s), including Radiography, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Dietetics, Podiatry and Speech and Language therapists. The one glaring omission are the Paramedics in England. The group that during the height of the Pandemic has been described by UCAS as the ‘Firefighters of Healthcare’. To be clear, a 1st degree application onto a Paramedical Science degree is entitled to both a student loan and the LSF. But unlike Nursing, Midwifery and most AHP’s, a 2nd degree application to study Paramedical Science is not entitled to either a 2nd student loan or the support of the LSF. In other words, if a mature student with a previous degree wishes to undertake training to become a Paramedic, they have to fund everything themselves. Therefore, this petition is not asking for special treatment, it is simply asking for Parity with those professions already mentioned. From this September 2021 the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) have made it mandatory that all new Paramedics have to have a BSc qualification. This is a Profession that we all rely on, it is a Profession that has staff shortages. It does not pay huge salaries and relies on attracting the right calibre of person that genuinely cares and wants to make a difference. The type of person that this petition concerns has been in the workplace, has built up some life skills and experiences and has decided that they want to contribute to society. They should be encouraged, not dissuaded by the huge financial burden. For the future well being of both the service and society, please sign this petition and please share this petition.

  • Stop Blackfriars Road Post Office Closure
    Hi Neil, As in the past you have helped me and local people keep this Post Office open, we need your help again. Currently Royal Mail are only closing it on Saturdays due, as they say, 'there's not enough business to make it pay' but according to the postmaster there this could become permanent after Christmas if Royal Mail get their way. This would mean a half hour journey to the next available open Post Office. Southwark and Old Bermondsey has an ageing population, as most others, thus making getting out a lot harder. Today's youngsters will be in the same position later in life.

  • Support The Climate And Ecological Emergency Bill
    The dangers of climate change and loss of natural habitat are happening across the whole world. People are losing livelihoods and homes and many are dying. Species extinction is accelerating at an unprecedented rate. Worldwide, governments are not taking enough action. Whilst our own government does have long term targets, sadly we are way off track in meeting them. Our Government appointed Committee on Climate Change gave this key message in June 2021 "This defining year for the UK’s climate credentials has been marred by uncertainty and delay to a host of new climate strategies. Those that have emerged have too often missed the mark. With every month of inaction, it is harder for the UK to get on track." The House of Commons Environmental Audit Committee stated in June 2021 "Of all G7 countries, the UK has the lowest level of biodiversity left. 15% of our species are now threatened with extinction. It is not too late to change course. Experts say that this downward trend can be reversed, but only through urgent transformative change." The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says it is now “Code Red for Humanity.” and warns that immediate, rapid and large-scale reductions in greenhouse gas emissions are needed to keep alive any hope of keeping to the goal, established in 2015 as a threshold for avoiding the worst impacts of climate change. The CEE Bill becoming an Act will mean: A legal commitment to follow the scientific advice to limit temperature rise to 1.5°C. A legal commitment to restore and protect nature. Annual legally-binding targets to keep us on track, whichever party is in government. Ordinary citizens informed and consulted via a Climate & Nature Assembly. Support from across ALL political parties. Many Councils and MPs already support the Bill. Here in Plymouth and Devon we all need to join them. South Hams Council are already supporting the bill along with many others in Devon, including Devon County Council.
