EMERGENCY MEETING TO DEBATE THREAT TO HEALTH SERVICES IN THANET MEETING WILL TAKE PLACE ON WED DEC 5 AT 7.30PM
An emergency meeting has been called to discuss what government changes in the NHS will mean to people in Thanet.
The meeting has been called by Save Our Health Service, a new campaigning group, which has been formed to safeguard health services in Thanet.
Speakers will include Dr Ron Singer, President of the Medical Practitioners Union, Peter Holloway, a medical worker from the Medway and consultant psychiatrist Dr Dick Symonds,
Local film-maker Christine Tongue, who is a member of Save Our Health Service, said: This is meeting comes at a critical time for our local health services. The new Thanet Clinical Commissioning Group which will take over control commissioning health services here now claims to be consulting the public about their future plans.
This may mean big changes for the future of QEQM Hospital and the other health services in our area. We have to understand whats happening and organise to give people in Thanet a real voice in the decisions that are being made.
Many fear that the changes will mean increasing privatisation of the NHS, giving it over to outfits like Virgin and American company. The only way we can stop that is we if start organising now.
The meeting is on Wednesday, December 5 at 7.30pm at the Red Hall, 11 Grosvenor Road, Broadstairs CT10 2BT.
