with the NHS petition in Holme on Spalding Moor
Howdenshire MP DAVID DAVIS explains, “The last few months have seen the announcement of a number of cuts to local health services in our area. There are presently proposals to close the rivers Ward at Goole Hospital and to reorganise midwifery services from Goole Hospital. Other local cuts have seen a reduction in the number of NHS dentists.
I recently signed an early day motion in the House of Commons calling on the government to protect Multiple Sclerosis Nurses who could well be the next victim of Mr Brown’s axe. Our Doctors and Nurses work extremely hard and need our support. I have therefore launched an NHS petition which is part of a national campaign demanding an end to the cuts.”
PAUL ROBINSON adds, “I recently met with David Davis MP to discuss local health service matters. The Government has repeatedly reorganised the structure of the NHS at great expense. The simple truth is that far too much of the extra money has been spent on government driven reorganisations, rather than on improving patient care.”
