Campaign To Retain The A&E Service In Southport





Last Thursday (17th November), in Southport Town Hall, councillors supported a motion from local Lib Dem councillors who hope to bring the Council and residents to together to work to retain this vital local service. In the controversial ‘NHS Sustainability & Transformation Programme’ (STP) Southport’s A&E Department has been threatened with being downgraded rather than the current 24 hour coverage.

The campaign to retain the A&E service in Southport is being spearheaded by Southport Liberal Democrat councillors and John Pugh MP, who has a debate on the matter in Parliament today – but local elected representative are seeking involvement from all sections of the community.

Leader of the Liberal Democrats in Sefton, Councillor Sue McGuire who proposed the motion at the Council meeting on Thursday said.

“I’m delighted that the overwhelming majority of councillors supported our motion, with just the small Conservative Group voting against. Sefton Council now needs to work to ensure that residents are informed of the proposals which are likely to have a big impact on their local heath services. The Sustainability & Transformation Programme is an attempt to disguise cutbacks in the NHS which is being presented as if it were simply a ‘re-jig’ of services.

“The decisions and plans have been made behind closed doors with no input from patients, residents or local healthcare professionals. These proposals will impact on the health and wellbeing of all our communities.  They now need to be discussed honestly in the open with input and discussion from the people who will be affected.”

The secret plans for Southport & Ormskirk Hospital only came to light because the plans for Cheshire & Merseyside STP were leaked to the Liverpool Echo.

Councillor Tony Dawson, spokesperson on Health and Adult Care for the Lib Team team, says:

“The plans that I have seen clearly show a possible downgrading in A&E service at Southport. The people of Southport, Formby and West Lancashire must all work together to send a clear message to Health Chiefs that this is not an option for our town.”

There is an on-line petition which can be signed at www.southportsays.co.uk and paper copies will be available in shops and businesses shortly.

Crossens Village To Have A Christmas Tree After An Absence Of Over 20 Years





Local Councillors John Dodd and Nigel Ashton have thanked Crossens Community Association for contributing £750 towards the installation cost of a Christmas tree for the village.

The tree will be erected on Wednesday the 23rd November in front of Crossens Methodist Church in the heart of Crossens village. It is over 20 years since Crossens last had its own community Christmas tree.

Councillor Nigel Ashton said “I am delighted that Crossens Methodist Church have agreed that the Christmas tree can be installed in their grounds. We, as local councillors, will pay the remainder of the cost from our Area Committee allocation. We have also arranged to fund the lights, which will be exclusive to the Crossens tree and can be reused in future years


Elaine Price, Chair of Crossens Community Association said “We are very pleased to contribute towards the Christmas tree. It shows organisations in the village working together for the good of the local community”.
