BREAKING NEWS: Caroline Lucas pledges support for Whittington on mumsnet
March 26, 2010
I can’t believe it !!! Just minutes ago Green Party Leader Caroline Lucas has answered my question about the Whittington on mumsnet and pledged her opposition to the closure of A&E and maternity services at the Whittington.
She is the first party leader in the UK to speak out in public against the closure at the Whittington hospital ! This is brilliant.
Thanks so much for your support Caroline ! We here in North London really need it !
See below what Caroline said about the Whittington or click here.
Greens in North London are very active in the campaign to stop closures at Whittington hospital, including our councillor there Katie Dawes. I am very happy to pledge my opposition to the closure of the A&E and maternity services at the Whittington, and if elected, will work hard to keep the services open. The Green Party believe it’s wrong that hospitals and health centres are treated like businesses, rather than vital public services. We want to see an end to money being wasted on botched PFI and privatisation schemes and we want to protect the jobs of public sector workers. And Greens are happy to lead the way when it comes to transparency, proper consultation and local decision making.
Thanks for all you are doing to try and make sure people can access the health services they need – and good luck.
