public_health.pngTory Cuts will have reached £531 million in Public Health by 2019/20, it seems that prevention is not as good as a cure! What a sad state of affairs!

The UK has a long history of fantastic public health, what is public health i hear you ask, in one sentence;-It is the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting human health as a society. What does it do, public health is the body responsible for the strategies to tackle teenage pregnancy, child obesity, physical inactivity, sexually transmitted disease and substance misuse to name a few.

Why does it matter if public health grants are slashed, it is recognised by most people in the health sector that the prevention agenda is far cheaper than hospital and other services that people might end up using. It is costlier in the long run to cut these services, therefore if the money is diverted to short term issues within the NHS it is building up problems in the future.

If you believe that this callous Tory Government has not planned these cuts then let me ask you this "why did they transfer Public Health to local authorities in April 2013" my view is so they could cut budgets and still claim they haven't cut the NHS...You can't trust a Tory!

 

 

Tory Cuts finally reach 1/2 a £Billion in Public health

Tory Cuts will have reached £531 million in Public Health by 2019/20, it seems that prevention is not as good as a cure! What a sad state of affairs!

Our Leader Jeremy Corbyn is coming to Grimsby to motivate and lead a door knocking session. He will address activists for 10 minutes or so, then it is on the doorstep promoting Labour values and a Labour Council. if you are not well  known to Grimsby Labour Party then bring your membership card or you will not be admitted. The last thing we can afford to do is allow Tory party members in or indeed other parties, this would be embarrassing to not only the Grimsby Labour Party but also Jeremy himself.
 
Our head office only holds about 50 people and we have organised for this number, I expect with the interest already shown that we will be full, if this is the case then admittance might not be guaranteed for health and safety reasons.
 
please Bring Warm Clothing as I can tell you from experience it gets really cold on the doorstep!
 
Kind Regards
 
Karl Wilson
Chairman
Great Grimsby Labour Party

Councils, across the UK, concerned for children, are stretched to the limits financially. The Government has taken no notice of warnings issued by bodies such as the LGA, that there will be a funding gap of £2billion by 2020. Priorities for this callous Government don't seem to include children. It wouldn't surprise me if a council went bust over such demands placed on it, i don't suppose it will be the Tories fault though!
