In essence, the Dept of Health gives a mandate to the NHS, setting out objectives, waiting times, cancer treatment, mental health services etc, etc. A new mandate is being prepared and the Government is inviting public comments on what should be in it – but it isn’t making much of an effort to encourage people to comment – as this article makes clear.
After you have read the article you can give your views here – but don’t forget the deadline is MONDAY.

“NOT PERFECT”, “POLITICALLY DRIVEN” BUT “FIRST STEP IN LONG JOURNEY TO REBUILD ECONOMY OF THE REGION”
Merseyside sixth region to agree devolution deal with government
First Merseyside Mayor to be elected in 2017
BBC News Council press release Official text of the deal What the devolution deal will mean for Wirral
“Since 2010 the six local authorities have seen more than £1.5 billion cut from their collective budgets and the Comprehensive Spending Review next week is widely expected to see further cuts of up to 40% to local government and public service funds.
While this deal does not come close to replacing the lost revenue it does give [us] greater control over more of the money available to the region” Council leader Phil Davies
Hundreds watched as Liscard’s new Christmas decorations, organised and funded by the local community and businesses, with support from the Council, were switched on this evening.
Local businesses and Wirral council’s local community fund have worked together to provide new christmas decorations for Liscard and they will be shown off this Saturday.
Jane Kennedy, the Police Commissioner, is so concerned about the effect that more cuts by the Tory government will have on Merseyside police that she has created an online petition. If it gets 100,000 signatures it will be considered for a parliamentary debate. Over 11,000 people have already signed the petition. Please click here to sign
