Stop NHS Cuts In Erewash

Stop NHS Cuts In Erewash

Stop and reverse cuts to health services in Erewash:
- Reverse cuts to Ilkeston Hospital Minor Injuries Unit opening hours which began on 2nd July.
- Rule out cuts to beds for Ilkeston Hospital.
- Halt "catastrophic" grant cuts to local charities by the Erewash Clinical Commissioning Group.

Why is this important?

We love our NHS and oppose cuts.

Ilkeston Hospital lost its Walk-in Centre and has now been dealt another blow, with the reduction in opening hours of the Minor Injuries Unit, which now closes 2 hours earlier. Further proposals to save money must rule out further reduction in the number of beds!

The NHS in Derbyshire is facing a £80 million funding “gap” this year due to underfunding.
Derbyshire's independent health watchdog has called for "meaningful public engagement" in the CCGs plans to recover the shortfall, which currently has given little opportunity for public consultation.

In addition to the cuts to the hospital, almost 40 not-for-profit charitable organisations in Derbyshire face losing the entirety of their funding if the CCG's plans to cut the £1.1million grant scheme go ahead.

Enough is enough, it’s time to fight these cuts, and give our local NHS the funding it needs.

Reasons for signing

  • I think this hospital is really needed in this area and does a really good job
  • We need to save this great facility locally. Not everyone can easily get to other hospitals for treatment or visiting family and friends.
  • Ilkeston is a great community hospital. They have already cut hours in the minor injuries, now beds, then once services are reduced they wiĺl be trying to close the hospital completely. These beds are essential to our local community to stop lengthy travel for both patient's and their families.
