What future our NHS?

Posted on: 15th January 2018

Public Meeting
Friday 26th Jan 2018
at 7.30pm – St John’s Hall, Penzance

The NHS is in melt down, Ambulances queuing, Cornwall’s NHS in massive debt and worse…

People want to know what’s going on? Why Conservative MPs have opposed giving the NHS the money it needs? What all these acronyms are – STP, ACO, ACS, and what it all means for our NHS?

I’ve invited an excellent panel of speakers. People who know what’s going on and who will help answer your questions.

As you know, I’ve always wanted to make sure people can be part of an open public debate on the matters which matter.

What future our NHS?

Ambulance queues at A&E… Edward Hain Hospital closed,
massive winter pressures… cancelled operations…
Cornwall’s NHS £100 million in debt…
Government demands £270 million of cuts by 2020…

Cornwall’s STP (Sustainability & Transformation Plan) drifts. Now ACO/ACS (Accountable Care Organisation/System) – threat or opportunity?

What’s at stake? What does it all mean for our NHS?
