Healthwatch Waltham Forest Engagement Day 31st March

Healthwatch Waltham Forest is running an Engagement Day on 31st March 2014

Throughout the day there will be stalls and speakers in the Pop up Shop, 137 Hoe Street, Walthamstow, E17 4RT (top of the market, opposite the building site)

10.00am – 5.30pm 31st March – Information Stall

Waltham Forest Save Our NHS will have an all-day stall (10.00 – 17.30) with information about current campaign issues and the group’s actions.  

Discuss the PFI with us. Tell us what you think about the NHS England Clinical Strategy Review for specialist Cancer and Cardiovascular services and their consultation process, or lack of it!

We even have campaign badges!

Barts Health Trust will be there, and Waltham Forest CCG, so a chance to meet them too.

6.30pm – 7.45pm 31st March – Public Meeting

Waltham Forest Save Our NHS will be holding a public meeting in the shop to introduce the group and to explain the importance we place on having a say in the future direction of the NHS.

There will be short presentations on topics including PFI debts and the local impact; the future of Whipps Cross Hospital; working with Waltham Forest CCG and Barts Health; working with Healthwatch; the NHS England Clinical Strategy Review; and local authority Health Scrutiny Committees.  This will be followed by a chaired question and answer session.

A chance to meet WF SONHS, learn about our campaign, hear our views, and give your own.

Petition to Department of Health

Petition presented to the Department of Health showing the outrage of health-workers

On sixteenth December 2013 health-workers gathered outside the Department of Health in Whitehall to express their increasing outrage and frustration at the continual attacks being made on the NHS.

These attacks are manifest in down-banding, privatisation and victimisation. This policy of the government is the cause of all the bitterness not only of healthcare workers but of the community at large, and cannot be tolerated.
