Mr Hancock – our lives are in your hands.
We call on you to set aside the proposed cuts to stroke services in Kent and Medway and instead to:
Bring the stroke unit back to Margate’s QEQM hospital
Ensure all 7 District General Hospitals in Kent and Medway, including Margate, Canterbury and Ashford, can be reached for acute care for stroke within 30 minutes, as they can in London.
Invest in better pay, conditions and most importantly recruitment incentives for NHS staff, improve the ambulance service, and ensure more doctors, more nurses, more therapists.
Invest in better care for patients in East Kent, less on managers’ salaries, management consultants and reorganisations.
