It was against this backdrop that we held our 2017 AGM and showed the film 'SELL OFF' on 30 May about the wholesale destruction and sell off of our beloved health services. This was a well attended, lively and optimistic meeting which ended by pledging to redouble our efforts to protect the public services we need and cherish.
Please see attached brief notes from the meeting.
Next date for your diary (apart from voting on Thursday): 14th July at 9.30am - the Public Sector trade union UNISON have called for a Lobby of the Surrey County Council Adults and Public Health Select Committee at County Hall in Kingston over proposed cuts to public health services and social care through the STP programme. More details soon.
