Silence is Golden!
Over the last 10 years we have held many noisy demonstrations to try and maintain essential services in Pembrokeshire at Withybush Hospital. They seemed to work for a time but then Mr Drakeford decided to ignore us all behind his soundproof glass at the Senedd. We are now asking you to join us in a different approach. We want you to spend 15 minutes of your day contemplating how badly we have all been affected by the loss of essential services.
We have decided to ask you all to be silent for 15 minutes every day at 12.45 pm from Monday 1st February 2016. We want you to stop doing anything that is not an emergency. We would you like you to pull over in the car, switch off or don't answer your phones and sit in silence just for those 15 minutes. We would like you to reflect on what the loss of essential services means to you, your family and your friends and what you would like to see happen in the future. This may interfere with the economy of Pembrokeshire and Wales for a time but we need the politicians to start listening again and return Consultant led Obstetrics, Paediatrics and SCBU to Withybush. The time is right because an election is just around the corner and it is the only time politicians are interested in us!
We are also planning to start an E - petition and paper petition to try and bring back these services that are essential in Pembrokeshire and have been taken away by Carwyn Jones and Mark Drakeford. Please keep an eye out for further notices about this coming soon. We are also planning a Silent Protest at the Senedd on Tuesday 8th March 2016. More details click here
