  • Protect Cancer Care in Cornwall
    We are delighted and relieved to hear that the decision has been taken not to take certain cancer and combined chemo/radiotherapy treatments out of Cornwall*. Many people have been campaigning for this to happen and we are so glad that being able to mount a petition via 38 Degrees helped to boost their numbers considerably. It is so important to exert our right to a say in matters of such great importance to us all, and taking part in petitioning, consultations and - where necessary - demonstrations is a vital part of our democracy. People power matters and it works! Thank you to the 38 Degrees team for helping us to play our part in this way All good wishes Michelle *NHS England met with Cornish MPs at Westminster yesterday (March 27). While it is still reviewing the feedback, MPs say that it has “assured MPs that the proposals will not see services being moved out of Cornwall”.

  • NHS England's scorecard Denies Access to Treatment for Ultra Rare Diseases
    19/12/2014: Following the threat of a legal challenge by a 10 year old boy with Morquio, NHS England have announced that they are abandoning the scorecard and are going back to the drawing-board on their approval process. We are really pleased that the petition and threat of legal action has forced NHS England to develop a fair decision making process for ultra-rare diseases - thank you to everyone who signed.

  • Release grant funding for new Metro trains now!
    22/11/17 We won! We've just listened to the budget with great interest and heard the Chancellor, Philip Hammond, say the words we've been asking him to: "we’ll fund the replacement of the 40-year-old rolling stock on the Tyne and Wear Metro at a total investment of £337million." We've checked with Nexus and it seems that our demands have been listened to - the funding will be a direct government grant and not the PFI deal we had feared. We'd like to thank all of you for signing our petition and helping to put pressure on the government to release this funding. This is a victory for all of you. We will be watching closely to understand the terms of this funding, and to ensure that it is delivered on time to give us the new trains we so desperately need. We will also be working with Nexus to ensure that new trains, when they do come, will be up to the standard we require. Announcement here:

    UPDATE! We won the campaign! Communities Secretary Sajid Javid slipped out an announcement backing down on the plans at at the Local Government Association (LGA) councillors' forum on 19 January 2017 You can read his full speech here: Specifically this bit “Today I can confirm that the localisation of Attendance Allowance is no longer being considered as part of the business rates reforms. I’ll be announcing further details on business rates reforms shortly. But I can tell you now that Attendance Allowance will not be included.” This is fantastic news, and thank you so much to everyone that signed the petition and emailed the minister to help put pressure on him. It looks as though Attendance Allowance is safe for now!
