• Death by a thousand Cuts

    We hear politicians claim “the NHS is safe in our hands” but do any of us believe these lies?

    Go into any A&E. Try and get a GP’s appointment. If you have drug or mental health problems try and get help. Ask anyone with care needs how they cope. We all know the results.

    Money won’t solve it all but cuts are killing our health care slowly. When I say “ours” I mean workers and claimants. People like politicians and “the rich” have private health care. They don’t use the NHS.

  • Say No to St Ann's Hospital Sell Off! (Mon 28 Jul)

    Demonstrate on  28 July 2014 6.15 at a Pre Application Planning Meeting  at the Civic Centre Wood Green N22

    Instead of a Sell Off - let's expand the provision on Haringey's only hospital site. Residents are calling for a Walk In Urgent Care Centre, more GP Facilities, a Child Health Centre and expanded Mental Health provision
    Barnet Enfield and Haringey Mental Health Trust are putting forward their plans to sell off 2/3rds of our NHS at what is called a Pre Application Meeting  where Members (of the Council) NOT the public can raise concerns about this development.

    This seems a sneaky way of smoothing things through before a planning decision is made by the Council in Mid September.

    Come and raise your own concerns and anger about the way this plan is being pushed through without any Health Assessment or "Health Check" made of the health needs of the Borough.       

    No Sell  off Without a Health Check !

    Meet  6 15  at Civic Centre Wood Green High Road N22

    Bring friends and colleagues! Bring placards.Show you want a Better St Ann's

     -Last Chance to Save this NHS land being lost forever !  If the  Plan goes through in September 2014 it could be sold on to any developer!

    On 20th June Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health Trust (BEHMHT) submitted the outline planning application for the St Ann's Hospital site.   This is our hospital, it is NHS land that belongs to us, they cannot be allowed to sell the site without demonstrating how our health will benefit.

    At a recent so called "Consultation"Meeting  on 16/7/14 despite anger and concern expressed by residents and hospital users there were more questions than answers from BEH and the planning bureaucrats!

    No Sell Off Without a Health Check! Residents and HaNSAH have consistently called for a Walk In Urgent Care Centre, more GP Facilities, a Child Health Centre and expanded Mental Health provision.
