Our NHS needs extra funding urgently. Please represent your constituents by asking health minister Jeremy Hunt and chancellor Philip Hammond for more funding.
Why is this important?
NHS bosses in Derby North are drawing up plans to cut and close local services. The plan is short on detail - but there’s a but there’s a £355m funding gap, and nearly 500 hospital beds across Derbyshire could close. It looks like big changes are on the table.
Cuts and closures aren’t the only option. If the government gave the NHS the money it needs, it’d mean decisions like these could be made with patients in mind, rather than saving money.
We're calling on our MP, Amanda Solloway, to stand up for the NHS in Derby North. So far, it doesn’t look like she’s said much. But if thousands of us sign a petition asking her to demand the NHS gets more funding, it’ll show her she needs to speak out.
