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.
