Well I goto vote in my wards by-election on 4th May and gosh this snap general election really is fast paced !
I would be happy to stand in a local election within Sheffield (South Yorkshire) at a future date as I will be more familiar with Something New’s Manifesto.
However presently I am the elected Chairperson for my local TARA (Tenants & Residents Association) so I attend the TARA committee meeting once per month unless urgent matters crop and publicly chair our Annual General Meeting and also a yearly General Meeting besides the odd community engagement event, so am used to rubbing shoulders with my local councillors !
Also I am serving as an elected NHS Governor with the cities Health & Social Care NHS Foundation Trust, and I assure you it really is eye opening to see how things like the NHS is (well basically getting bullied under the present Tory Government ) My vision is to see the NHS revamped into it’s original ethos and of course be better funded, especially mental health service’s. Now I fully accept that with any government when it comes to funding services yes they need reserves for urgent funding of course.
But can I chuck out a question to you and I really would welcome your comments too.
As part of moving to a better political system ! to maybe a more “Compassionate” government then do you reckon Health Authorities throughout the UK should get at least a fair and equitable amount of funding specifically for Air Ambulances ?
