Yesterday, a member of our #SaveSouthendNHS team conducted an audit of the Mid and South Essex STP Facebook page, following their claims to Councillors at the Joint Health Overview Scrutiny Committee on Tuesday 20th February that there had been significant engagement and public reach attained by their consultation. Much like all of the other information issued by the STP, we conclude that yet again, it is nothing more than utter #spin. This is a completely meaningless consultation and one which needs to be halted with immediate effect. How can huge decisions be made on relocating essential hospital specialities when only 0.75 of the population are even aware that the STP is happening? This affects 1.5 million people and their efforts at consultation are NOT GOOD ENOUGH. Most of their engagement has likely come from our campaign followers and to date, #SaveSouthendNHS have handed out over 40,000 leaflets despite us not having a full time comms team or a cash budget.
