Fair Funding for Buckinghamshire

We ask you to ensure that Buckinghamshire not only receives the national average in funds, but we also receive enough public funding so that key services are restored to Wycombe Hospital.

Why is this important?

For a substantial amount of time now, Buckinghamshire has received less funding per capita than most of the country for our hospitals. This ‘cash-starving’ or 'squeeze' contributed to downgrades at Amersham and Wycombe hospitals and our Trust has recently been in 'special measures'.
Since the downgrades at Wycombe hospital, many people have suffered and neighbouring hospitals have been overwhelmed.
Staff, patients and their loved ones deserve better.

Reasons for signing

  • Is essential
  • In Britain Today we need new thinking towards Healthcare. Visit my website EUREKYS. You will find my articles about the Beds Crisis in the NHS, my views on The Future Strategy for the NHS and Remedial Healthcare. Click on my Profile bottom right and scroll to the artices.Mindset of the Government needs to change. They created £400 Billions of Quantitative Easing for the Banks. Why not create a further £100 Billions for Healthcare ? Ray Williams EUREKYS.
  • High Wycombe has a population of around 120,000. This, together with surrounding towns such as Amersham & Beaconsfield etc surely justifies a full Hospital service including A&E at High Wycombe. Can cel the extremely wasteful HS2 and use the money for services the public needs.
