This month the Policy Focus for discussion will be Healthcare for all. (Labour Party Manifesto)
Section 7 covers three main areas.
- The NHS
- Towards a National Care Service
- Mental Health
How does this impact on Weston-super-Mare?
- Weston General Hospital is facing cuts to A and Department, Maternity and GP services are also facing cuts.
- Our demographic has a higher than average elderly population requiring personal care.
- Cuts to CAMHS and adult mental health leaves the most vulnerable in our society at risk.
Please also refer to NHS Composite Motion which was passed unanimously at Conference , September 2017
What are our priorities? What are our targets which we can focus on at the next general election and deliver better health and care ?
Discussions are open and feedback welcome.
