To: Ann Barnes, Chief Executive, Stockport NHS Foundation Trust and Jeremy Hunt, Secretary of State for Health

Save surgical ward B3 and 400 jobs at Stepping Hill Hospital, Stockport

Reason for signing

  • Bevan said that the NHS "will last as long as there are folk left with the faith to fight for it." If we don't, what can we say to our kids when there is no NHS for them to access? The NHS is under increasing demand. That means it needs increased funding, not cuts. We have the fifth largest economy in the world, yet we can't afford healthcare? We could afford to build it in 1945 at the end of a crippling war, yet we can't sustain it now?
