This message came into my mail box today. Timely, because those of you who follow the blog know it's an issue that has long been on my mind:

""Dear Anne,
Local campaigns to protect our NHS are getting going all over the country.

38 Degrees members in St. Austell and also county-wide are working to prevent privatisation of the NHS. The county-wide group recently met with the Kernow Clinical Commissioning Group (KCCG). They delivered the 38 Degrees petition and discussed changes to the CCG’s constitution that will help to protect locally NHS services.

Ellen, a 38 Degrees member in North Cornwall, has also made this request:

"A group of us from North Cornwall would like to get together to work on local issues. These may include problems with Serco’s out-of-hours service and the lack of staff at the Launceston hospital.”

If you’d like to get involved there’s a meeting on:

Thursday 6th December, 7pm

Clease Hall,
Clease Road,
Camelford, PL32 9QX

Directions: If you're coming into Camelford from the west, turn left opposite the Co-op store and take the first left into the Hall’s carpark. If you're coming from the east, turn right opposite the Co-op store and take the first left. The Hall is opposite the North Cornwall Museum and Gallery, which will be closed.

If you'd like to get in touch with Ellen, you can call her on 01840 230 311. If you have any questions generally about the 38 Degrees NHS campaign, please email ccgsupport@38degrees.org.uk.

Thanks for being involved''
