Call for more health provision in Rainham

Jul 30, 2014
With the ongoing cuts to our National Health Service, it is more important now than ever before, to fight for more investment locally. Our services have been cut back to the bare minimum and standards have slipped. This is just unacceptable.For the last four years Jon Cruddas has been pushing for more health provision in Rainham, to meet the needs of local people. Jon Cruddas MP and the Dagenham and Rainham Labour Party have launched a new campaign, fighting for more investment in our local health service. Having already met with senior consultants to discuss the options it is now time to get local people involved. Services such as Queen’s Hospital are coming under more and more strain due to cuts and closures across the area, people are not receiving the level of care or quality of service that they need. It's time to fight back and secure investment.Jon has staarted a petition calling on the government and Havering Council to recognise the need for more health provision in the Rainham area.If you are a Rainham resident and would like to collect a petition down your street, please contact Jon’s office sending your full name, address and contact number to andrew.achilleos@parliament.uk an information pack and petition will then be sent out for you to fill in and return.You can also add your name to our online petition below.

Petition to condemn government plans to close tube ticket offices

Aug 14, 2013
Secret plans recently leaked to the press have revealed that London Mayor, Boris Johnson intends to close all of the 268 underground and overground ticket offices in London over the next two years. This is bad news for Londoners but could also have a detrimental effect on local commuters.The closures will affect three stations across the area seeing local job losses at Dagenham Heathway, Dagenham East and Elm Park in the Havering side of the constituency. As well as job losses, closures could be detrimental to public safety by putting late night commuters at a higher risk of crime and increased feelings of vulnerability.Jon said: “These proposed closures will seriously impede local commuters, making their journeys more difficult and less safe. Reports suggest that it is not only ticket office staff, but station guards and managers that will lose their jobs as well. “Over the past few years the security has improved and anti-social behaviour has dropped significantly at all of our local stations – however these cuts are set to change that. Older commuters and children will feel vulnerable late at night and there are real concerns about having insufficient staff at the station to deal with emergencies.“The Tory-led coalition government are putting public safety at risk in order to save money which is totally unacceptable. I will be doing everything I can, by raising a petition and writing to Boris Johnson and the TFL to condemn these deplorable and economically damaging cuts.” Fill out the petition form below to join the fight and make your voice heard!

Petition against cutting the Fire Rescue Unit at Hornchurch Fire Station

Jul 31, 2013
Jon Cruddas MP is fighting cuts to the emergency services in Havering. New plans propose that Hornchurch Fire Station should lose its Fire Rescue Unit (FRU). The Fire Rescue Unit is specialist equipment that deals primarily with road crashes but are instrumental in responding to any terrorist attack within London. The proposals will mean that the London Borough of Havering will be left with no Fire Rescue Units which will leave the whole of East London under-protected. Proposals from the Revised Fifth London Safety Plan (LSP5) will mean FRU’s will be reduced across London and crewing levels will be cut from 5 to 4. These plans will see a total of 588 fire fighters lose their jobs and the public will be left at risk from a service they fund. If these plans go ahead it will mean that in times of emergency the Fire Rescue Unit s will have to come from across London with the closest being East Ham. Jon said: The Fire Rescue Unit being cut from Hornchurch Fire Station is a real worry and has consequences across the whole area. I will be fighting these cutbacks every step of the way. I have launched a petition to show the broad public support for keeping the FRU via my website. I have written to the Mayor of London asking to halt this cut. I would appreciate as much support from the public as possible by signing the petition.
