At the last Birley Ward meeting the hot topic was the NHS. Praise was given to local MP Clive Betts for his concern over the increasingly dangerous state of the National Health Service., and for his work on promoting the issues so far.
However, we feel this issue needs a greater awareness amongst members of the public, with local member Ken extremely passionate about the cuts that are both currently occurring, and planned for future – and the need to prevent them now to preserve the NHS as we know it.
If you would like to get involved with the debate, or have any other issues you’d like to raise then please contact the Birley Ward Labour Party online, or any of our Councillors; Bryan, Denise and Karen. Alternatively everyone is welcome to attend the next meeting, to be held on Tuesday 20th October at 7.30pm.
