Consultation by TSDHCNHST: Proposal to 'transfer' ie close, all 10 beds from each of the two community hospitals – Ashburton & Buckfastleigh, and Bovey Tracey.

Annexe to submission of 14 February 2013 - 24 February 2013
Some points regarding fault in process and other concerns have been raised in the prior submission.
There remains a need to examine the alleged factual bases for the proposed closure of these beds by the 'Care Trust' from a medical service perspective. It has seemed, at the public meetings, that assertion dominated fact and record.

Nursed mother of SJH with cancer of the pancreas at home. Professional help from GP, DN, Macmillan nurses, and Marie Curie nurses at night. She died peacefully in our home, pain and discomfort being relieved by IV morphine. Mother of DSH, with severe rheumatoid arthritis and a possible tumour, died in a Surrey NH. Grandmother of SJH died in peace in Swanage Cottage Hospital, which is also threatened with closure. An aunt, a nurse, also died there. She had received much good in-patient and out-patient treatment at this hospital over the years including the excision of malignant skin tumours under LA.
To Holocaust Memorial Day
7 January 2010
I hope to attend the Exeter event. I am disturbed however that the killing of thousands upon thousands of Japanese people by US atom bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki are not included in the short list of holocausts on your web site. I should like to hear why these two holocausts are not listed for remembrance. I feel similarly about the genocide of the 20 million North American Indians, the Australian aborigines and the Armenian genocide.

Subject: For the attention of Lord Patten of Bridgepoint
Dear Lord Patten,
"Our European Advisory Board (Bridgepoint) brings together exceptional people from business and political spheres, and offers the Firm informed external perspectives on strategic, political, social and other issues." QUITE.
I was not aware that you sat on the advisory board of Bridgepoint. I came to this after studying LGC forensics, another Bridgepoint holding, via a BBC report of terrible incompetence which caused a man to be held in jail for two months on a rape charge.
Care UK is a substantial holding (of Bridgepoint). The BBC is pumping out material that is strongly biased towards the early workings of the Health and Social Security Bill 2011. There is little doubt among many that the NHS might not survive as more than a logo - as used by the many private 'health' companies, if the destabilising/eviscerating strategy is maintained.
This is an interview with a remarkably courageous and eloquent lady. Cynthia and myself were amongst sixteen people on our way to Gaza when our vessel the MV Dignity was rammed in darkness 30 December 2008. The captain of the gunboat clearly had orders to drown us. I have kept in touch with her since. Her soul speaks clearly through her wide eyes. As President she would tower over the timid. the corrupt and the killers.
