Keep Breast Cancer Treatment in Bassetlaw

Recent Activity

This week John Mann MP joined seven leading UK charities to highlight World Cancer Day 2017.

Cancer Research UK, Breast Cancer Care, Breast Cancer Now, CLIC Sargent, Anthony Nolan, Bowel Cancer UK and Marie Curie have joined forces to make a bigger impact in transforming the lives of millions who are affected by cancer.

John Mann commented: “One in two people born in the UK will develop cancer at some point in their lifetime.  The statistics also show that these figures are a lot higher deprived areas including in certain parts of Bassetlaw.  Most of us have lost family members and friends to the horrific disease and we all share the hope that it’s something that can be eradicated or easily treated in future years.”

 “I am keen to support this group of charities, who work so hard to support people and their families and put valuable resources into seeking new treatments and cures.”  

“I know that a large number of local people raise money for cancer charities and their commitment should also be recognised.”

John Mann MP supports World Cancer Day 2017

This week John Mann MP joined seven leading UK charities to highlight World Cancer Day 2017.

On Monday evening John Mann MP held a debate in Parliament on the future of Bassetlaw Hospital and the closure of the children’s ward to new admissions overnight. 

Mann commented:

 

“On Monday in Parliament I gave a voice to a lot of very small children in Bassetlaw who cannot speak for themselves. Over the past few weeks I have met with parents who are now being affected by the closure of the children’s ward to new admissions overnight and have to take their children to Doncaster or further afield. I wanted to make sure Parliament heard their voices.”

 

“Every child and parent in Bassetlaw will benefit from keeping the children’s ward fully functional and fully operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There is huge support for this campaign from local families, with almost 10,000 people joining a Facebook campaign in less than a week. I encourage everyone to join the campaign and speak up for local children.”

 

Two public meetings are being organised for Saturday 4th February. The first is at Retford Town Hall at 10am and the second is at the Worksop Miners Welfare on Carlton Road at 12 noon.

John Mann MP holds Parliamentary Debate on Bassetlaw Hospital

On Monday evening John Mann MP held a debate in Parliament on the future of Bassetlaw Hospital and the closure of the children’s ward to new admissions overnight. 

Bassetlaw MP John Mann has said that the latest statistics published today by the Ministry of Justice showing Prison suicides at record levels highlights the need for the Government to hire more prison officers. 

Statistics released today showed that a record number of inmates killed themselves in 2016 in prisons in England and Wales.

 

John Mann MP said “Today’s figures sadly show that more and more inmates in our Prisons are killing themselves and its clear the Government needs to act now.”

 

John Mann continued “In 2015 HMP Ranby, a category C prison in Bassetlaw had a record number of inmates take their own lives. Since then a new management team has been installed and I have supported them and the new approach they have taken. However, it’s clear that they can only continue to make improvements if more prison officers are now employed.”

 

“More prison officers are also needed to protect the people who work in our prisons and the inmates who simply want to serve their time and return to society. The Government has repeatedly turned down my requests for prisons to be given more officers, sadly today we have seen the sad consequences of their cuts to the prison service.”
