Parliamentary Motion in Support of St Helier

June 8, 2012 12:57 PM

Local MP Tom Brake is to table a motion in Parliament calling for local healthcare reviews to be as comprehensive as possible to avoid a repeat of the flawed review that recommended the closure of A&E and maternity services at St Helier Hospital.

Tom Brake said, 'The decision to close A&E and maternity services at St Helier is based upon a flawed process. As a community we are fighting to save our local health services but I also want to make sure flawed reviews do not lead to similar situations elsewhere.'

The Early Day Motion will also allow other Members of Parliament to show their support for the Save Our St Helier Campaign, which has already attracted thousands of petition signatures.

Tom Brake will be tabling the Early Day Motion when Parliament returns and will be encouraging other MPs to support the motion. To sign the petition visit www.tombrake.co.uk/saveoursthelier
