There are only 100 days until the General Election on May 7th, are you registered to vote? 

The changes that David Cameron and Nick Clegg have made to voting laws mean millions of people will have dropped off the register. Make sure you are not one of them. You can now register to vote online, visit:

This election will be one of the closest in a generation, and it means that your vote really does count. 

Think about how you would feel waking up to five more years of a Tory government, knowing that you hadn't stood up to be counted.  

Five more years of a declining NHS, Five more years of the cruel Bedroom Tax, five more years of an economy that works only for a privileged few.

With only 6 months to go until the General Election supporters across the city joined the fight to keep Southampton Labour come May 2015

We spoke to hundreds of voters in Southampton about everything from anti-social behaviour to their concerns over the future of our NHS. 

The biggest concern of many residents we spoke to was the future of the NHS under the Conservatives. The choice between a Labour and a Tory government is clear. Under the Tories we have lost thousands of frontline staff and bits of our NHS have been sold off to the highest bidder. 

It was great to see so many supporters out this weekend and we'll be out every week from now until election day. If you want to join a team that ensures we get a Labour majority in 2015 join us for an hour or two on one of our sessions  

We look forward to seeing you.

This week, Southampton Labour MPs,candidates, councillors and activists came together to ask for a re-think on the closure of the Bitterne Walk-in centre. 

 

 

We were all shocked when we heard about the closure of the Bitterne Walk-in centre, and we wanted to get out and do something about it. Since we heard we've been campaigning, collecting hundreds of signatures from local residents who are opposed to this.

Almost everyone we have spoken to in the last couple of weeks, agrees that this is a valuable service, especially as the East of the city has no hospital. 

We have heard from parents who use it with their kids outside of GP surgery times, and from people who believe they would have ended up in hospital had it not been for the preventative care the walk-in centre provided quickly. 

There seem to be few facts available about why it's happening, and almost no consultation. Some 20,000 pensioners, families, children and others use our NHS Walk-In Centre every year, and there are concerns about extra pressures on other health services as these patients are now forced to look elsewhere.

The tragic truth of the matter is that this closure really didn't have to happen. This Tory-led government spent £16m of taxpayers' money on unnecessarily re-organising the NHS here in Southampton. That would be enough money to keep the Bitterne NHS Walk-In Centre open for at least another 10 years. 

You can help us urge a re-think on it's closure by joining us on a campaign day or signing the petition
