Drop the Bill

(February 23, 2012)

Mark has signed the online petition calling for the Government to drop it's Health Bill.

Drop the Bill

The Drop the Bill petition was created by Dr Kailash Chand and has been signed by celebrities Rio Ferdinand, Stephen Fry and Jamie Oliver. It is also supported by countless professional health organisations. 

Mark said: "Central Lancashire PCT has already seen a 77% increase in the number of patients wating longer than 18 weeks for treatment since David Cameron became Prime Minister."

"It is scandalous for the Government to waste millions of pounds on a reckless and unwanted back room organisation of the NHS whilst 3,500 nursing jobs have already been lost nationally and 2,500 more are set to be cut."

"The Government must drop the bill."
