Jeremy Hunt lost his appeal against closing Lewisham Accident and Emergency. The law that protected it would be removed if Clause 118 passes. The Clause will allow the government to close or downgrade any hospital in the country, with barely any consultation of local people, if there is a Trust in financial difficulties anywhere nearby.

LAST CHANCE TO GET SIGNATURES AGAINST CLAUSE 118

Nearly 150,000 people have signed the petition – add your name and circulate to everyone you know to sign before  Thursday.  https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/jeremy-hunt-should-resign-and-take-his-hospital-closure-clause-with-him

CARE DATA BREAKTHROUGH

NHS England has announced that Care.data – the plan to upload our medical records to a central database – is being postponed for 6 months. This was after over 130,000 voted to opt out and after a legal challenge had been lodged.
