The NHS is in crisis due to 6 years of underfunding. The biggest cuts are yet to come. Cornwall's Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) outlines £264 million cuts to health and social care in the next 4 years. That's the equivalent of 10,000 NHS nurses. Truro and Falmouth Labour Party is campaigning against health and social care cuts and demanding these vital services are adequately funded. Join us on Saturday 21 January.

If you did not have a head for figures you would be forgiven for thinking that Cornwall's Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) heralds in a brighter and healthier future for the people of Cornwall. But hidden amidst the spin about “taking control”, “golden opportunities” and “improving the quality of health and social care services” is £264 million cuts.

At least they could be honest. It’s so irritating when the Tories seek to pull the wool over our eyes. Over the weekend the Red Cross stated that the, “British health care services was facing an humanitarian crisis.” Those are words used for war-torn countries.

Thin air, he’s expecting existing services to cover the cost and carry the burden. This, whilst extolling the greatness of the British health system.

The Red Cross says that the the NHS is facing a humanitarian crisis. They step in where there are no friends or family to help get people recently in hospital to get back on to their feet, Sky news reports. The health service is in crisis, yet the Tories want to cut it further with the Sustainability and Transromation Plans (STP). As one of the co-founders of the Keep Our NHS Public, Dr Jacky Davis says, the STPs, "slash, trash and privatise." The STP for Cornwall has recently been published and Cornwall faces £264 million cuts in expenditure. With Care homes closing, Treliske on black alert because it's run out of beds and mental health patients leaving the county for care, this is unacceptable. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said "this is a national scandal" and the NHS "crisis" was "unprecedented".

The Government has finally succumbed to pressure and have conceded they will outline their plan for Article 50 negotiations; a seasonal miracle that Labour created. However, as things stand Article 50 isn’t just for Christmas and we must hold the Government to account through 2017 and beyond, their negotiations must not be allowed to cost jobs and prosperity for the people of Britain.

The decision to raise the cap on student numbers at the Tremough Campus has been deferred until March.  Campaigners against University expansion breathed a sigh of relief. Reported in The Packet on Thursday 5 January 2017, Councillor Webber said his deferral was based on two points: "Further information on purpose built accommodation figures to improve the situation in Falmouth," and information "from the universities in regards to their business plans for the rim and hub."
