Dear friends


Our North West senior citizen correspondent Kevn Donovan writes, in a personal capacity, that following the Wirral Health and Wellbeing Board meeting today, that is exactly what he is!


He urges the following actions:


1.       Call upon Wirral MPs and Labour and other councillors to try to rein in the Chair of Wirral Health and Wellbeing Board and the runaway coach of the Sustainability and Transformation Plan.


2.      Urge all campaigners to publicly pillory this farce.


3.      Ask everyone to spread the word about STPs and get involved in local and national campaigns.


4.      Recommend Stop The Sustainability & Transformation Plans website  and join the local/national day of action on 3rd December EVENT LINK: HERE





5. see Kevin's campaign group (Defend Our NHS WIrral) Facebook page for details of our social and public protest meeting on 8th December


Kevin Donavan writes:

I have just walked out of the ‘meeting’ of Wirral’s Health & Wellbeing Board in disgust.


We reached the item on the Sustainability and Transformation Plan THE PLAN (we were due a verbal report from the Director for Health & Care) and the chair (Cllr Phil Davies, ‘labour’ leader of the Council) announced that the STP was not to be discussed because the CCG had not published the report yet.


This was met with protest and incredulity from the public gallery. The STP HAD been published THE PLAN (people coming into the meeting had already seen reports of its contents) but the AO/MD/Chair of the CCG claimed that ‘technical difficulties’ were delaying its release.


Davies refused point blank to accept public questions or comments and said the STP would be discussed at the next meeting. Next meeting? Date unknown but scheduled for 15 MARCH 2017.


Thus my rather inchoate conclusions at this stage:


1.       Davies is a disgrace. Apparently he prefers to negotiate with the Chinese Communist Party than the people of Wirral.


2.      To exclude any public discussion on this vital issue at this juncture is simply unconscionable.


3.      As STPs are due to be signed off very shortly AND as contracts are to be signed by 23rd December there is now no opportunity for public debate. Until he can prove otherwise the leader of Wirral Labour Party and Council is apparently aiding and abetting the Tories’ ‘slash, trash and privatise’ blitzkrieg.


4.      I cannot believe that a ‘labour’ politician is so cavalier in his attitude to our health and care services. Labour councils all over the country (yesterday in Sefton, today Cheshire West) are denouncing the STP process. My own Labour councillor has told me that Birkenhead Labour constituency party (to which Davies belongs) and all Wirral Labour councillors “are in full support of campaigning in support of the NHS.”


Can I urge fellow campaigners to:


1.       Call upon Wirral MPs and Labour and other councillors to try to rein in this man and the runaway coach of the STP.

2.      To publicly pillory this farce.

3.      Ask everyone to spread the word about STPs and get involved in local and national campaigns.

Your senior citizen correspondent – mad as hell and just not going to take it anymore!

What's Aunty got to say?

Well... you know that this is not the only Health and Wellbeing Board to have failed its duties of diligence. All over the country I am sure the pattern is the same. That's why it is important to let other campaigners know. Just look in West Yorkshire too THE SAME PROBLEM
