  • Don't limit access to contraceptive services
    30/04/18 - We were successful!!! Thank you all for your support. The CCG commented that they had never received so much feedback before. Vasectomies will continue to be funded, and female sterilisation will still be available on the NHS when alternative long acting forms of contraception have been exhausted. There are still restrictions on IVF but the CCG has made concessions. I received great support from the Women's Forum of Bath Labour party, and I don't think this campaign would have been successful without their hard work. Protect our NHS Bath was also a valuable support. Thank you all for getting involved. We presented a printout of the petition to the CCG at their public meeting and it seems to have had a real impact. In the course of the campaign, we learnt that BANES has a funding shortfall of £6 million for the next financial year. I will continue to monitor threats to services and continue to campaign for transparency around a publicly funded comprehensive NHS, free at the point of delivery. Thank you all again. With best wishes, Maddy Piper

  • Keep PASNAS at the University of Southampton
    15/05/18 - We won... mostly. The University is retaining the pension scheme for existing staff, but new staff from the start of next year will not be eligible to join. The petition was an important part of the campaign and certainly made a difference.
