Defend Whittington Hospital Coalition

Big thanks to your members for contributing £100 to Defend the Whittington Hospital Coalition.  It is particularly welcome to receive support from the NEU as the NHS is suffering many similar issues as Education, particularly the privatisation of the running of bits of it, underfunding and very poor pay leading to shortages of staff.

Whittington Hospital is currently facing TWO court cases. One relating to a missed diagnosis of cervical cancer, an area of medicine in which they have been world leaders. So that is shocking. And the case in which we are involved, where Grenfell contractors are suing the Hospital for FOURTEEN MILLION pounds for deciding not to procure them to loan money and to plan for their Estate Strategy. This whole debacle relates to the refusal of the Government to finance much needed hospital development and of course the use of private and reckless private companies who put profits before safety.

Our fightback is costly. So your support is great. Of course, there will be more battles to fight under the new Government.

With thanks and in solidarity

Hi Tony,

Please pass on our sincere thanks to your members for their generous contribution towards the making of 'Austerity Fight'. Islington NUT are on the opening credits to the film. We hope to have a screening in London soon. I will let you know when. 

I am copying this to Helen Watson who is the editor of the NUT magazine 'The Teacher'. I'm sure she will be interested in doing an article on the film and connecting it to your support when the film is next shown in London.

We want as many community groups and union branches to screen the film around the UK as possible. Once the film has gone to festivals it will be available on DVD. We would be happy to help you organise a special screening for Islington NUT.

Many thanks,

Phil Maxwell

Hi Tony

Could I send my thanks to Islington NUT for it's continued support for IHOOPs. In particular can I thank you and acknowledge receipt of the cheque for £200 towards the cost of the coach to the TUC demonstration at the Tory Party conference on Saturday 3rd Oct. 2015.

It was an excellent day, and an important protest, made possible in part by your continued support.

We look forward to working together in the future.

Best wishes
