What is the Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) and why do Health Campaigns Oppose it?
Over 200 People in Oxford signed this petition to the County Council’s Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee on Saturday, 19 August, 2017.
Petition to the Oxfordshire Joint Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee:
We entreat you to reject phase 1 of the Oxfordshire Transformation Programme because:
It entails closing hospitals and health facilities that belong to us
It will give the people of Oxfordshire a poorer, cheaper service than they had
It will lead to overcrowding and longer waits at the JR and Churchill
It will make things even more difficult for those without transport, and those
It is based on the false idea that the government must cut funding to the NHS
(funding can be found and taxes for the rich raised).
Please demand that Phases 1 and 2 be consulted together, and agreed with West
Berkshire and Buckinghamshire across the whole STP population.
