    Is St Helier hospital safe now?

    The demise of the now discredited and disbanded Better Service Better Value (BSBV) was cheered by all of us who are campaigning to protect NHS services for local people.

    So, is St Helier safe now?

    The simple answer is no.

    I have serious concerns about its successor: the South West London Collaborative Commissioning (SWLCC) . This is made up of the six south west London CCGs (Clinical Commissioning Groups), this time with a remit to look more wholistically at health provision locally, so it will include community services, out of hours care and care for mental health service users.

    Article: Jun 21, 2014

    Residents in Wimbledon, Raynes Park and Motspur Park have been left out in the cold, as the second phase of the Crossrail 2 consultation gets underway, says Shas Sheehan.

    Crossrail 2, the proposed new high-frequency, high-capacity rail line running underground through London from north to south, will have a major impact on Wimbledon, Raynes Park and Motspur Park.

  • Petition: May 3, 2014

    I/We, the undersigned, ask the Department for Transport and South West Trains to include Raynes Park station in the "Access for All" programme.

    At the moment parents with buggies and people with mobility issues have to climb a flight of stairs and find it very difficult to access the southbound platform; a lift or a ramp to this platform will allow many more people to use our station.

    Millions to benefit from improved GP care

    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 welcomes record high for University applications from disadvantaged students

    Figures released today by UCAS show that the number of 18-year olds in England applying to university has reached a record high.

    Not only has the application rate for 18-year-olds in England has increased to its highest ever level of 34.8%, but the rate of disadvantaged young people in England has also increased to its highest ever level, to 20.7%.

  • Petition: Dec 9, 2013

    We, the undersigned, call on the Vatican to intervene to protect the ethos of St Anthony's hospital and the unique relationship with St Raphael's hospice, which since 1987 has served 380,000 people in both the boroughs of Merton and Sutton. We encourage the Daughters of the Cross to drop plans to sell St Anthony's, without which the hospice's future would be uncertain, and instead agree the establishment of a new Catholic charity to make safe the long term future of both the hospice and the hospital.
