    Millions to benefit from improved GP care

  • Article: Feb 19, 2014

    Shas Sheehan has welcomed the new statement by local health bosses confirming that they will scrap current recommendations to close essential services at St Helier hospital.

    Thank goodness. However it's a shame it cost £9m of taxpayers' money before commonsense prevailed.

    South West London's GPs and healthcare bosses have announced they are going back to the drawing board, but this time the six CCGs (Clinical Commissioning Groups), all local health providers and each of the six local authorities will work together to deliver a more joined up plan. This holistic approach could potentially deliver better, higher quality services for local people.

    St Raphael's Hospice is a local charity that looks after local people faced with life-threatening illnesses. Local residents have found the loving care, their dying relatives received by the compassionate staff, comforting beyond description.

    They are finding it hard to believe that this much loved charity's future is in jeopardy.

  • Wim library stall
    Article: Feb 4, 2014

    Campaigners can finally breathe a sigh of relief.

    On 29 January 2014, an independent planning inspector gave the all clear for Wimbledon Library, agreeing to remove it from the Sites and Policies Plan.

    This means that no consultation will now take place on the future of the library.

    Shas Sheehan welcomed the news, saying, "Finally, doubt about the future of our library has been put to bed. It was essential that the site was taken out of the council's planning document."

    Shas Sheehan, who has an academic background in Environmental Technology, welcomed warmly Nick Clegg's important speech to the Green Alliance this morning, making the case that what seemed like a cross-party consensus on the issue of climate change has now crumbled, leaving the Liberal Democrats as the only major party still committed to preventing the catastrophic warming of the planet.
