Boris, now’s your chance to end pensions injustice 0Fine words again from our new Prime Minister on how he is going to solve the crisis in the NHS, schools, education and housing. Nothing about the inhumane robbing of people’s pensions that successive Governments have done for the past 30 years, with no thought for the untold misery it brings to families, families like those of the former ASW Cardiff workers. Since 1997 in excess of £230bn has been stolen from company pension schemes by governments, enough to build 30 hospitals, pay for 50,000 more doctors, 200,000 nurses and 50,000 police men and women, and the Treasury would still be in profit to the tune of £150bn.

0 Post a comment Thursday, 4 July 2019 - Health THE hourly parking rate was reintroduced on Monday at the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford in response to feedback from patients and visitors. But the charge of £3.40 per hour, together with an increase from £4 to £4.50 for up to two hours, make it the highest charging NHS trust for short-stay users.The steep parking fees levied by the Royal Surrey County Hospital and Frimley Health Foundation Trust have been condemned as a “charge on the sick”.Frimley Park currently charges £3.40 for up to two hours and does not have an hourly rate.Data published after Christmas by the Press Association showed that NHS trusts made more than £226m in 2017/18 from parking, including penalty fines.While NHS trusts in England still levy parking fees, charges have been abolished in Wales and most of Scotland.Frimley Health, one of England’s highest-earning trusts, made £4.5m in 2017-18 and has … [Read more...] about Hospital parking fees a ‘charge on the sick’

Mr Burnie ploughed his entire fortune into a charity to provide free transport for cancer patients in the North East of England and is currently half way through an epic 7,000-miles trek on foot around Britain and Ireland on a mission to see the services his charity provides in the Newcastle area expanded right across these islands.
