Health Visitors, School Nurses, community hospital and other workers, as well as members of the public will lobby the meeting of Somerset Primary Care Trust on Wednesday 15th September, in Yeovil, to persuade the members of the county’s NHS Primary Care Trust to vote to stay within the NHS, rather than turn the Community Health Service into a Social Enterprise.
There is widespread concern that a token ‘consultation’ with both staff and members of the public has been rushed through during a peak holiday period, and the PCT are insisting that the final decision must be made at their September meeting. Staff are asking for more time for a proper consultation, involving staff AND public, which will end with the final decision being made by a democratic staff ballot.
The key Somerset PCT meeting is being held at Yeovil, headquarters of the Somerset Primary Care Trust, on 15th September. The campaign is asking for maximum staff and public support at the meeting, which is held at Wynford House, Lufton Way, Yeovil, BS22 8HR, starting at 10.00am.
The lobby will assemble at 9.30am. Members of the public are invited to put questions to the PCT at the start of the meeting.
