NHS England are now ‘consulting’ on their plan to end heart surgery at Glenfield. The public are encouraged to participate in this consultation by filling in an online questionnaire.
But NHS England have made the document unnecessarily complicated — perhaps to put people off.
The campaign to Save Glenfield Heart Centre has responded by organising a series of public meetings to discuss how we can beat their rigged consultation.
The first meeting will be held on Saturday April 22, at the Adult Education Centre, Belvoir Street, Leicester, beginning at 2pm. The Facebook page for the event can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1466930666670777/
A second meeting has also been organised in Loughborough, and will be taking place on Saturday May 6, at the Rosebery St Peters Community Centre, Storer Road, Loughborough.
Other meetings in Mansfield, Nottingham, Derby, and Lincoln will be announced in the near future.
Although NHS England have made the online consultation difficult to fill in, it is essential that as many people respond as possible.
Come to one of the meetings to find out how best to respond to their questions.
