There will be a demonstration outside the meeting of the Clinical Commissioning Group on Wednesday against the further degrading of healthcare services in Dorset. Come to Vespasian House DT1 1TG at 1p.m. Bring banners and noise-making equipment.

The long-running conspiracy to shut down Dorset County Hospital enters a new phase this week. Not only is its A & E and maternity department threatened, but those of Poole Hospital also.

Each of these schemes has met with ferocious hostility, followed by sham public consultations, congregations of worthies and posturing by local politicians, especially the odious Oliver Letwin, who has more faces than a town hall clock. Wessex Solidarity has known for some time that the decision was taken long ago behind closed doors and these shenanigans are purely to defuse the situation until the publicity dies down. Make no mistake about it, we are going to be left with one emergency department for the entire county, and it will serve the wealthy conurbation around Bournemouth.

The people of West Dorset, already shafted over public transport, and virtually isolated, will simply not have emergency or paediatric healthcare services within reach.

If this is allowed to proceed, people are going to die, some of you reading this, your elderly, your children are going to die, for the greedy parasites who are carving up the N.H.S. we built, merely to line their own pockets. The time for politeness has passed.

NOW GET ON THE STREETS!

Residents in West Dorset are suffering from cuts to their bus services that make it hard enough to get to Dorchester let alone Poole or Bournemouth, there is no longer an evening service and some villages have only two buses a day.

A recent attempt to flog off the pathology service at the hospital was foiled after a public outcry.

West Dorset’s M.P. Oliver Letwin is the author of ‘Privatising the World’ and Britain’s biggest enterprise; his blueprint for selling the NHS.

For the second time this year, a couple of thousand Dorset residents jammed the county town of Dorchester to remind the Clinical Commissioning Group that we will not accept cuts to paediatric or maternity services in West Dorset under any circumstances. For some time now, the ordinary people of this county have been at war with those who would pillage the health service we built for ourselves, and leave us at the mercy of private corporations who see us as commodities.

dsOur campaign, started by a determined group of working class women whose only motive was defending their kids, has grown and spread beyond the county. We now have the support of thousands of Dorset residents plus Unite Community, Unison, Industrial Workers of the World, Dorset People’s Assembly, Dorset Eye, Dorset Socialists, Bristol SolFed, the local Zumba community, scaffolders, Daleks, anarchists, snowmen, footballing bears, local media and some politicians.

e_2139Oliver Letwin M.P. author of ‘Privatising the world’  and Britain’s biggest enterprise, his plan for selling the NHS; – who once claimed that within five years of a Conservative election victory the NHS “will not exist anymore”  – is proper squirming now. He said:

“I am absolutely clear that the best interest of patients lies in maintaining paediatric in-patient services at Dorset County Hospital. I have had absolute confirmation that there is no money to be saved from moving them to Bournemouth or Poole, and the advantages of Dorchester in terms of access are huge.”

He will have to look elsewhere for his retirement fund then.

We’re glad to have the Daleks on our side but we still don’t trust Oliver Letwin.

We’re relieved the Daleks are on our side but we still don’t trust Oliver Letwin.
