Stand up for NHS funding in Colne Valley: Jason McCartney
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 Colne Valley are drawing up plans to cut and close local services. The plan is short on detail - but there’s a £91m funding gap in West Yorkshire and this may affect the five specialist stroke units and several mental health services. 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, Jason McCartney, to stand up for the NHS in the Colne Valley. So far, it doesn’t look like he’s said much. But if thousands of us sign a petition asking him to demand the NHS gets more funding, it’ll show him that he needs to speak out.
