CX Picnic – Protest against Low Pay

We’ve just been alerted to a Protest – Picnic organised by GMB trade unionists at Charing Cross Hospital involving low paid privatised staff who are running a hugely impressive campaign for proper pay & conditions. A few weeks ago around 100 mainly young cleaners, porters and ancillary staff attended. It was a very diverse, enthusiastic crowd challenging the privatisation of public services. Do yourself a favour and get down there.

Vigil for Pembridge Hospice Beds Sat 13th July 1-3pm Ladbroke Grove

 It’s now official that the NW London Clinical Commissioning Groups want to close the Pembridge Palliative Care In Patient Unit  with the loss of 13 palliative care beds used for terminally ill people for respite, symptom control and to enable people to die in a hospice setting if that is their choice. We fear that there is a lack of capacity in the system to provide alternative beds and that in any case the closure would damage continuity of care and the accessibility of services for very vulnerable people and their families. Its worth noting that yet again those in the Pembridge catchment area most likely to be effected are groups with high levels of deprivation and poverty and a high proportion of BAME residents. https://www.mylondon.news/news/west-london-news/nhs-health-hospice-death-poverty-16499209 We can’t let this go unchallenged.

Council Governance Review Panel-Wednesday 28 November

The next Governance Review meeting of RBKC Council allows members of the Public to share their vision of the way RBKC ought to operate. It will be on 28 November at 6.30 pm at the Town Hall and they are urging the public to attend.

Key questions that will be covered include:

  • Thinking about decisions that the Council makes on council services, what decisions would you particularly want to be involved in?
  • In the past, did you want to be involved in particular Council decisions and didn’t get the chance. What were these?
  • Are there any examples of when the Council has involved local people in decision-making that you thought worked well?
  • In general, what more could we do to involve you in our decision-making?
  • If you did want to be more involved in local decisions, what stops you?
