Dulwich Hospital Campaign

This will be of interest to all residents in and around Peckham as Dulwich Hospital is part of our local hospital services.
___________________________________________

PUBLIC MEETING:
Tuesday 15th December 2009 at 6.30pm

Goldsmiths Room, Dulwich Hospital,
East Dulwich Grove, SE22
___________________________________________
HELP US to:
* fight to keep Dulwich Hospital as a fully functioning Local Community Hospital;
* engage wider support from the public;
* fill up our Petition to persuade the Government and others to support our Hospital;
* get yourselves, your neighbours and friends, to pledge support and ideas for the future of Dulwich Hospital;
* contribute written support and suggestions to our website;

SAVE OUR BEDS in Dulwich Hospital
Kings Hospital is overcrowded: patients on trolleys
Patients bussed to Lewisham not Dulwich for Treatment
Patients sent home too early after operations, only to return later as emergency cases
Patients in mixed wards
Elderly, dementia and mentally ill patients in the same wards as seriously ill patients

SAVE OUR LAND
Keep Dulwich Hospital on our land: in an area of high social need for Lambeth and Southwark. The Primary Care Trust is no longer involved in providing services.
NOW the PCT commissions others to provide our Health services, but they are likely to bypass local people and go to PRIVATE health services.
We do not want American-style Private Health Schemes here.

LOCAL PEOPLE NEED A LOCAL HOSPITAL
1. London as a Capital is short of beds;
2. Dulwich is near Kings Acute hospital, and can take the overflow patients;
3. Dulwich can provide Intermediate Care beds;
4. Dulwich can provide beds for ill people whose carers need respite from their work;
5. Dulwich Hospital has good transport links;
6. A skilled workforce for the Hospital lives locally to provide qualified staff.

800 beds in 1970; 90 beds in 2000; 12 beds in 2009; no plans for any beds in the future.

BUILD a HOSPITAL: BUILD UP the local COMMUNITY
SAVE OUR BEDS : KEEP DULWICH HOSPITAL

Southern Rail Passenger Panel

Do you use any of the trains that go through North Dulwich, East Dulwich, Peckham Rye, Queens Road, & South Bermondsey to London Bridge, or the South London Line that runs from London Bridge to Victoria via South Bermondsey, Queens Rd, Peckham Rye and Denmark Hill?
If so, please consider volunteering to become part of Southern Rail’s Passenger Panel to give your views. It would be very good to have Southwark rail users on the Panel to give feedback on our parts of the services, so hope some of you volunteer. See below for details.
Southwark Rail Users’ Group (SRUG)

_____________________________________________
Message from Southern Rail:
We are looking for passengers who want to be involved in giving views on Southern services by joining our new Passenger Panel.

The role of the panel is a consultative one with opinions of members gathered on our services and changes we might want to make. This could be anything from timetable changes to announcements on trains.

The panel of 1000-plus people complements our existing consultation process with local councils, user groups and other passenger representatives.

In order to tailor Passenger Panel consultations as much as possible, we ask you to provide us with information about you and your typical journey on Southern. We expect consultations to take place no more than once a month and depending on your typical journey and the plans and issues to be discussed, relevant consultations for you may be less frequent than that.

The panel is managed through the Southern website and by email so you must have access to both in order to participate.

If you would like to be involved, why not apply to become a member by completing the form using the link below.
