When I read through the plan there was virtually no real content for Wirral at all, it was all to be decided at a later date?

There will have to be a consultation first before a decision, but the protestors seem to fear that the STP is a smokescreen to move to a more American style system of healthcare rather than "free at the point of use".

Changes have already been made for the worse. I know someone that has to have a blood test once a week, it used to be done by appointment, now it is going to be a hit and miss affair of going to a drop in centre and hoping you get dealt with within the next few hours. Considering the person is disabled, has to drag someone else along with them to assist and is very old, its not good.
