Petition for Military Hospital

#1
Please sign:

"With the growing numbers of wounded personnel repatriated to the UK and with continued growth in medically discharged personnel since the Falklands war to current conflicts and operations, our service men & women and veterans of previous operational service are owed the best medical care possible. The existing facilities are falling short and the NHS are not meeting the needs of veterans who still need treatment for their service related conditions. A dedicated Military & Veterans Hospital will greatly help resolve this National scandal since the complete closure of our military hospitals that has proved to be total folly."

I signed it but think it's a complete bag of shite. I was in the Catterick gaffe today (checking my JPA - burn me) - the place is empty - what a waste.

The CMH in Aldershot is sat empty and they've gone and built the Aldershot Centre for Health about 400 yards down the road from it!

There are empty I suspect as part of the plan to ensure we dont have any AMS facilities left by proving they are not needed. The MoD needs to ensure that at least one of these empty facilities is used for returning wounded troops thus cutting infection risks!

I have signed and a very worthy cause it is.

However, does anyone know if the gubment have ever acted on any of these petitions or is it just 'smoke n mirrors' with the pollies saying they are listening to the public while doing sweet FA?

Also signed, although I agree with others in that I have not heard of the government changing anything as a result of these petitions.
They do have a nice record of our names, addresses, Emails and opinions.
Nice little database for someone, or am I joining the growing band of conspiricy theorist's? :roll:

And they will not until they are forced to do by the weight of public opinion.

Public opinion as espoused by the national press and political lobbyists!

signed - "they" (the Gubmint) may not take notice, but if we don't try they definitely won't!

Not signed. A dedicated hospital is certainly not the answer, so this petition is asking for the wrong thing anyway - regardless of how futile these 'petitions' are.
 
#17
Signed, but I beleive it won't make a tiny bit of difference. Just one hospital? what we need and what we are capable of staffing (assuming that we had the money for the build and equpment) are two totally different things. The best I can see this petition doing (like all the other petitions) is allow the powers that be to claim they are listning to us, and let them know what kind of questions to avoid answering.

I recall the attempts to buy off the ex service persons in the late 80's and early 90's. I needed work done on my knee and the NHS would pay for the op to be done at Woolwich as I was ex army. The next move was to push these cases back to the NHS having reduced the waiting lists which then put that money back into the NHS system. I also was worried about the quality of knee ops having seen some BMH horrors in Bn.

Well 11463 seem to think differently. That's the latest.

just as well we don't ask them to make important decisions or to actually look at what they are asking for and whether it fits the needs of the Armed Forces. A single military hospital would be useless to 90% of the Armed Forces.

733,000 people buy The Star newspaper every day - happy that I think differently to them too.
