YOUR CAMPAIGN could be part of our 999 Network. Put your group on the national 999 Network and start to join all our voices together.
Sadly after many years the SAT campaign group disbanded last year. But many of the members are still fighting on and they are a supreme example of determination against the odds.
SAVE THE ALEX is one of many wonderful community based campaigns around the country who are fighting valiantly for their local services.
The public being denied their voice, their opinion and their democratic rights - is something we all need to be aware of. It is happening across the country. It is time to support one another.

The team made an online book charting what they have
had to fight and the situation surrounding the
NHS Alexandra Hospital.
In 2017 the picture is clear isn't it?
Our NHS Worcestershire campaigners are holding a March for Callum followed by a Family Fun Day on the Church Green in the centre of Redditch. Saturday 29th April, 11am at Trinity High School, B98 8HB
If you live near Redditch why not support them in the day that honour's the memory of Callum Cartlidge. His story is one we need to make people aware of.
Callum Cartlidge was sent in an ambulance by his GP to
Worcester Royal Infirmary on 2nd March 2017. He had been diagnosed with tonsillitis earlier in the week, but was showing signs of being much more seriously ill. He was discharged at 11pm.
On 3rd March at 3.30pm an ambulance was called to his home. Callum was in cardiac arrest. The ambulance service requested that he should be taken to the Alexandra, just 2 miles from home.
This request was declined. Callum was taken to Worcester while paramedics tried to resuscitate him. Callum died at Worcester.
He was 8 years old.

If you can't get to Redditich we have agreed with Callum's Family that it is appropriate to include Callum's story in community events around the country this coming May Day Weekend. If you are holding an event think about mentioning Callum, telling his story, showing his picture, holding a moment's silence to honour him. And remind us all why we are campaigning to save our NHS.
