    I am a campaigenr for Charing Cross Hospital and also NHS. I have been talking to a few campaigners from lewisham and they told me to think outside the box. I was wondering would you be interested in setting up tables at The Nottinghill Carnival with other Hospitals. I have suggested this with our group but no help. It would be a fantastic day also have the chance to enjoy the carnival and get to dress up and get the message out. Maryanne x

    STITCH Day of Action 8 February 2014
    The Square in Torrington followed by a march to the cottage hospital

    Dear Lewisham Friends

    I’m writing on behalf of the Save The Irreplaceable Torrington Hospital Campaign S.T.I.T.C.H. to request a message of support from the Save Lewisham Hospital A&E Department campaign for our day of action.

    Ten hospital beds have been removed on the grounds that community nursing is being counterposed as a better way to organise health care and support in this area than keeping beds in the cottage hospital.

    There is a fund of information to show that this is not the case and both types of care are required.

    Currently there is a ‘consultation’ period, which has been implemented by the Devon Clinical Commissioning group and the local Trust. However this was afteer the decision was made to remove the beds.They say that the have restored the beds during this ‘consultation’ but the evidence is that potential patients are being directed to hospitals in South Molton, Holsworthy, Barnstaple and Bideford which are all several miles from Torrington.

    I’m particularly proud of your campaign in Lewisham, having lived and taught there for twenty years between 1980-2000 (Forest Hill School and Crofton, as it was then). I also had reason to use A&E there on a number of occasions for myself and my family. Many of our friends and former students took part in those fantastic marches last year!

    I have attached some links.

    Thanks very much Olivia

    We have a public meeting on Saturday 22 February at 11am at the Howe Hall in Torrington.

    Our Day of action was very successful and has built the momentum again against the North Devon Healthcare Trust who are planning to make these cuts.

    We know they are planning cuts in Ilfracombe, Bideford and North Devon Hospitals and hope we can join up campaigns.

    We’ll keep in contact!

    In solidarity

    Dave Clinch
