Chopin Road Potholes fixed

Chopin Road Potholes fixed

Pothole Plague

The potholes were very bad at the entrance to the road and no action was being taken by the Hampshire County Council.

Fed up with the continuing saga we used pictures of  rubber ducks swimming in the potholes to shame the Council into action.

Following Pothole Pete’s social media debut, they have been fixed but we need to monitor the quality of the repair.

Your Brighton Hill Councillors, working for you. We don’t just pose by things – we get ’em fixed!

Basingstoke Climate Change Declaration

Basingstoke Climate Change Declaration

Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council have declared a Climate Change Emergency.

That makes the 18th July 2019 a special day indeed.

The motion was presented by Basingstoke Labour but had the support of all parties who worked together to produce one motion.

The motion was passed unanimously and there were some great speeches.

This is a very important issue and we will now need to make sure we make sure the Council delivers and help secure the future of our planet.

Listen to the speeches given by our brilliant Labour Councillors, Chloe Ashfield and Andrew McCormick.

Potholes drive us quackers

Pothole pandemic just wont go away.

Our Tory Councils in Basingstoke and at County just don’t seem to care about Basingstoke’s environment.

Everything they do is late and slapdash.

Recent repairs to potholes are failing – just like they are failing to look after Basingstoke.

This is just one example in Chopin Road.

GPs forced to come up with action plan

GPs forced to come up with action plan

The Gillies and Overbridge Medical Partnership, Brighton Hill, which is run by the Acorn Health Partnership following the merger of three GP surgeries, has been inspected by the Quality Care Commission who have  issued it with a ‘requires improvement’ rating. During the visit, inspectors found the patient safety was being put at risk.

At the time of the merger residents were unhappy and immediately noticed problems getting appointments and confusion over which surgeries to attend. A year on and the situation is even worse. when we are out and about in the ward and in our Councillor Surgeries you tell us that waiting for 5 week for an appointment and even three weeks for a telephone appointment is the norm.

Try to get through on the phone is usually described as a “nightmare”

Your Labour Councillors are working hard to put the Care Commissioning Group under pressure to improve the performance of GP’s in Basingstoke. At the moment they don’t even monitor waiting times for appointments or getting through on the phone.

There is now a special task group looking at the situation to see what might be done. You can see Councillor Kim Taylor’s speech in the Council Chamber here https://brightonhill.online/bhtv/

This winter we reported the mayhem over the flu jab. Patients were waiting in queues even the frail , elderly and disabled only to be turned away due to lack of supplies. We asked why are you texting people to come for a flue jab if you dont have the stock?

Travellers have left

Travellers have left

Travellers have gone but improved defences are needed.

Basingstoke Council is a very wealthy Council but makes unfair decisions when it comes to spending money. This Tory administration thinks nothing of giving massive handouts to big businesses that don’t need it but cuts back on services and work that would benefit residents. Millions are given to American property companies to build hotels or to subsidise offices and the Council intends to spend £35 on buying commercial property to rent. But in Brighton Hill we have to fight for everything. We had to fight for our buses and Labour are still fighting for more defences to stop illegal traveller encampments.
