B,B.C. 2 Wales at 9.00 pm on January 12. For viewers with Sky and Freeview it can also be seen on the same date and time. Otherwise for viewers throughout the U.K it can be viewed at 9.00pm pm on B.B.C.4 on January 22. It is the biggest unsolved serial murder case in British criminal history - the so-called 'Jack the Stripper' murders took place in Swinging Sixties London.Six women lost their lives to a killer who was never caught. Criminologist Professor David Wilson leads an investigation to unmask the killer, who claimed more victims than even his notorious Victorian namesake, Jack the Ripper.Professor Wilson and his investigative team - which includes former detective Jackie Malton and forensic psychologist Professor Mike Berry - begin their hunt for the killer not in London, but 150 miles away in Abertillery, South Wales. In 1921, the Welsh mining town was devastated by the double murder of two schoolgirls when eight-year-old Freda Brunell and 11-year-old Florence Little were killed just weeks apart by a local boy 15-year-old Harold Jones, who the Abertillery residents still refer to as their 'Dark Son'.Those murders - especially the sadistic nature of their deaths, and the treatment of the bodies afterwards - have eerie parallels with the 'Jack the Stripper' murders. Could Harold Jones the boy killer really have matured in later life into a serial killer?To test this theory, the team revisit the scenes of the murders in west London. They use contemporary policing techniques such as geographical and offender profiling to see if the crimes of Jones the boy can be measured against those of Jack the Stripper. And from the outset, it becomes apparent there are many chilling similarities.

Beware of scammers.There are many persons who are being persuaded by fraudulent Facebook adverts to invest £250.00 in Bitcoin. The adverts show Dragons Den celebrities praising the bitcoin revolution and falsely claiming the Dragons have themselves made millions from this wonderful venture. They falsely claim Chris Eubank, Jim Davidson, the Dragons and others have made millions from their investment. The truth is you will lose at least £250.00.

Can anyone with a knowledge of scientific matters please help? Muriel Drinkwater aged 12 was raped and murdered near Swansea in 1946. In 2008 South Wales Police located Muriel's coat which had been stored away since 1946. The coat produced a profile from semen found on the coat. It was a Y-STR profile which unfortunately cannot link a known suspect in the murder to the suspect's daughter who is still alive. I have been led to believe that only a son can provide the link, but the suspect has no sons. Can nephews or any other family member of the suspect provide the link?

Does anyone by any chance have a copy of the 1989 True Detective Winter Special? I am particularly interested in the content on page 35. Master Detective, part of the True Detective Group refuse to send me a scan of what is published on page 35 but they have forwarded me a scan of the front and inside page stating that a story on page 35 deals with former Hammersmith, Fulham and Putney child killer Harold Jones. They won't send me the scan because they have stolen photographs that I own copyright of and they have used them in the August 2018 edition of Master Detective. They have scanned about 12 of my photos directly from my book Every Mother's Nightmare - Abertillery in Mourning to use in the August edition. They state in an email to me that I should be grateful that they recommend my book.

Now he wants to rent a room with an English family (his English isn't bad but he knows he needs to live with a family for it to get much better) He can pay £500 a month but really not much more.

When I read the initial coverage of the Jameson on Blythe Road changing its name to the Trump Arms I thought it was a bit of fun and a clever publicity stunt.
However, some of the subsequent coverage has suggested it might be a good idea to avoid the place on Saturday. The description of the event as a Nazi Ball by some left wing groups just shows their lack of understanding of history. The organisers seem to include perfectly respectable right of centre organisations like the Bow Group and the Bruges Group but they perhaps need to be a bit more careful over the company they keep.
This recent article from the Talk Radio web site shows that one of the organisers of the event is Lucy Brown. Her involvement is highlighted in the latest edition of Private Eye in which they claim she was the camera operator for EDL leader Tommy Robinson's inflammatory anti-Islamic YouTube videos. and helped him organise a 'Day for Freedom' rally.

On Saturday 4 August 2018 at 2.00pm, a memorial service is being held in the Metropole Theatre, Abertillery, South Wales for two Abertillery murder victims, 8 year-old Freda Burnell and 11 year-old Florence Little who were killed in Abertillery in 1921.Their killer, Harold Jones a.k.a Harry Stevens lived in Fulham, Putney and Hammersmith between 1946 and 1971 when he died. With a choir and town band performing at the memorial service there is expected to be over 250 people attending. There will be an expected 50 members of the 2 girls' family members attending from various parts of Britain. After the service there will be a re-dedication of the 2 girls' memorials at Brynithel Cemetery.Over the past 7 months, myself, Councillors Gill Clark and Julie Holt have raised nearly £3,400.00 towards the cost of restoring the 2 dilapidated memorials. We are still about £200 short of paying the memorial mason who has done the work at cost price and about £300 short of printing 260 memorial service programmes. These will consist of 8 pages each.We have now been given a donation to book the Metropole Theatre for the event. We have also been kindly offered a donation of £300 towards the cost a buffet that will be held in the Metropole later in the afternoon.If anyone would like to consider making a donation for this worthy cause please contact me on 07989555376 or email@example.comPlease google Florence Little/Freda Burnell or Harold Jones - Killer for more information.Regards.Neil Milkins

The 94 bus is due to be less frequent from this weekend, TfL has decreed. I frequently take this bus as do many others.When he was Mayor Ken Livingstone increased the frequency of the 94 bus. Now Sadiq Khan has undone this. How does reducing bus services throughout London (the 94 is not the only casualty) help reduce congestion and pollution? It doesn't.A bad assessment here and a bad decision.

Regarding Abertillery child killer Harold Jones. 10 years ago, New Scotland Yard informed South Wales Police that they believed it was possible that Harold Jones may have been the killer of 12 year-old Muriel Joan Drinkwater in Swansea in 1946. The Detective Chief Inspector who led the murder inquiry ten years ago has retired from the Force refusing to believe that Jones was the killer, although D.N.A could prove one way or the other whether Jones was or not. Now under instructions from the South Wales Police Chief Constable Matt Jukes, the case is being looked into by South Wales Police Assistant Chief Constable Jonathan Drake, Detective Chief Superintendent Danny Richards and Detective Chief Inspector Mark O'Shea. Five years ago respected Detective Chief Inspector Paul Bethell confirmed that Jones WAS a suspect in the Drinkwater murder inquiry.

It is not much - just a small biodegradable bag each week, say, but I would like to find a LOCAL place that can use this as compost so it is NOT wasted! Any school garden, park, allotment etc etc would do!

At the bottom of Shepherds's Bush Rd there is a Bus Lane on the off-side of the road that runs for about 15 metres.I have been fined for entering into that lane for what must have been about 3 seconds when there was no bus in sight, either behind or in front of me, and where the build up of rush-hour traffic was released onward by my moving forward.Should cars be fined in such circumstances where there is clearly no obstruction for buses and where the transgression is for such a short period?I would welcome the local inhabitants perspective?

What astonishing scenes in Hammersmith last night! Hope anyone isn't too badly affected. A fantastic response from the emergency services but less so from Thames Water. Surely their under investment in our water network is short sighted because the insurance claims they are going to have to pay will be monstrous. I hope that none of the shops and restaurants in the affected area are driven under by this because I know it is a difficult stretch to make a decent income from.

The following was posted on a site I follow on Facebook.........FREE TO GOOD HOME: 5 year old child. Genuine reason for re-homing: We just got a new puppy so no longer have the time for the child. We think the puppy might one day be allergic to child and are also worried the child might bite the puppy. Child also tortures puppy by pulling its tail. Child is potty trained, though with occasional mistakes and up to date on all shots. Needs a home by tomorrow or it'll be put to sleep. Thanks! YOU WOULDN'T DO THIS TO A CHILD SO WHY DO YOU SEE IT AS ACCEPTABLE TO DO IT TO AN ANIMAL? If you can't dedicate 10-15 years to a dog then don't get one. A dog is for life, not just for Christmas

In August 1996, Kim Rossmo, a detective inspector from the Vancouver Police Department (VPD), was contacted by a UK police task force called Operation Lynx. The task force involved police officers from three counties -- Leicestershire, West Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire -- who were all searching for a man responsible for five abductions, rapes and violent sex attacks over the previous 15 years.Rossmo had developed geographic profiling, a method of tracking serial criminals which used data about the location of the crimes. Because of Rossmo's geographic profiling the rapist was caught. Rossmo recently identified Aldensley Road Hammersmith as the centre of a hotspot where he believed the Hammmersmith Nudes' killer lived. Who lived in Aldensley Road when the murders took place? The Dark Son of Abertillery, Harold Jones!

A new book- The Secret Life Of Freddie Mills has been released by a former Sun newspaper reporter, Michael Litchfield published by a former Sun editor of Bizzare, John Blake. The book alleges that former world boxing champion Freddie Mills was the person dubbed The Hammersmith Nudes' Killer of the 1960's. Evidence proves that Mills has been wrongly stitched up. The book has been publicised in the Sun, the Daily Mail and other newspapers including the Bournemouth Echo the town where Freddie Mills was born. Comments from readers of the Bournemouth Echo have roundly condemned the malicious lies. If you read the Bournemouth Echo story most persons would I believe think the alleged evidence to be preposterous. (google Freddie Mills-Bournemouth Echo.) For instance in the book Freddie Mills had allegedly confessed to John du Rose the officer in charge of the case that he was the killer. But because Du Rose and Mills were Freemasons Du Rose never told his superiors. Even more ludicrous- fact Freddie Mills was desperately short of money when he died yet the book claims he gave the Kray Twins £1000 to assassinate him. Rightly Freddies daughter Susan and his stepson, actor Don McCorkindale are incensed.

The locally based Addison Singers comprises two classical choirs – an auditioned Chamber Choir and larger non-auditioned Oratorio Choir; and two jazz choirs – an auditioned Jazz Ensemble and a larger non-auditioned all-female Jazz Choir. It also offers three different singing classes to meet the needs of beginners, intermediate and the more competent, experienced singer. We're a very friendly group of choirs, (some of us get together after rehearsal in the bar on site!) and new singers are always welcome. Do have a look at our website, our new term is about to start and enrolment is happening now. If you're not sure, you can even join in the first rehearsal as a "taster session"! More details here, https://www.addisonsingers.com/ or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also ask me any general questions :-)

Ever since the beginning of the year, there has been a slowly increasing pile of rubbish outside 302 King Street which is underneath our block of flats & opposite the Tesco Extra store. This includes broken glass & is an ugly eyesore that is apparently on private property, a couple of metres back from the regular pavement. I have been in touch about this on regular occasions with the Hammersmith & Fulham's Cleaner Greener hotline who then put me in touch with Richard Acholowino,the Public Protection & Safety Officer,whom I contacted on numerous occasions (both by phone & email) & each time he has assured me that he will take care of it. However, nothing has happened & people continue to add to the pile. Out of sheer frustration, I emailed Andy Stocker, our "Street Czar," who got back to me immediately saying he would take a look & update me in due course. That was four weeks ago & I've heard nothing & the rubbish pile keeps getting bigger & messier & is an embarrassing sight that no one seems to want to take responsibility for.With our council so far proving totally ineffectual, has anyone out there got any ideas on how we can sort out this ridiculous situation?

Since then, I have seen several more left in various places in the Borough.I would encourage the Council to take them off the streets immediately (forget polite notices from the Street Scene Enforcement team) and charge the company a hefty fee to get them back.

Message: Yes you at right. There are a cabal of "nutters" who spoil the Chiswick site for me and many others. However it IS used and a benefit to many. I am amazed that how poorly the Hammersmith site is contributed to. It's free so why not use it and help to improve it.

There appears to be massive financial pressure exerted from the top of the NHS and from Jeremy Hunt on the management of Imperial and other London hospitals trusts.There are no less that three plans to sell off the Imperial "estate":(1) the original 2013 "Shaping a Healthier Future" [title always makes me choke!] (2) "Project Phoenix" - the NHS's PPP plan to sell off all NHS land in the South East including London by the end of June by European tender.(3) a new appeal for ideas by Imperial - article in print edition of Evening Standard on 22nd June called " 'Best ideas' wanted from developers as three hospitals look to rebuild" (available in pressreader.com)Yes, they could all be current plans. The common theme is a "fire sale". When you look at the Government's "starving diet" for the NHS it is easy to see why.

Guy Standeven was one of the most prolific actors in British history. He was born in Scarborough in 1928 and died in Hammersmith in 1998.He lived in London for the bulk of his life as the majority of his work was done here. He was in over 1000 productions over the years including film, TV, theatre, Radio and voice over work. Many of this was extra work but he had substantial speaking parts in the children's TV series Knightmare among others. I'm researching his life and career for an article and would love to hear from friends, acquaintances, family or colleagues of the man. If anyone can help we can speak on this forum or exchange emails.

All NHS England "surplus" land (any land on which it is either impossible to run services because of the squeeze on current running expenditure or genuinely redundant land) is to be parcelled up into 6 regions and sold off as Public Private Partnership deals through European tendering arrangements to be completed by end June.

I'm deeply concerned that in the build up to the General Election there has been little discussion about the disastrous changes to the NHS being proposed by the local Sustainability and Transformation Plan, the "North West London STP" which covers 8 boroughs from Westminster to Hillingdon. These plans for the 44 "footprint" regions of England and Wales have been made in a secretive manner, with very little public information and are nothing more than plans to slash, trash and privatise our NHS. But most worrying are large private healthcare companies and their lobbyists, such as Virgin Care and American healthcare companies including UnitedHealth, the previous employer of Simon Stevens CEO of the NHS, which will chase the UK's expenditure through the NHS using the Health and Social Care Act 2012. This pressure will inexorably lead to the American model of healthcare management which causes 50% of personal bankruptcies each year in the US. All the STPs call for "Accountable Care Organisations/Systems", a term which Americans recognise only too well. This system with low fixed budgets will be screwed down so that it does not meet the public need and it will turn the health provision in England and Wales into a two tier health system where the rich will pay and the rest of us will be left with a very poor, minimal NHS, like the American Medicare/Medicaid system. I would urge all readers to contact their candidates and let them know that the public will not stand for the destruction of the NHS and all MPs must reject the STPs and reject the move to Accountable Care Organisations. These "new models of care" will end the NHS as a comprehensive service that provides the full range of care to all who need it, free at the point of need and fully accountable to the public (private companies will hide their waste as well as their profits). Readers can find their candidates on the website. www.whocanivotefor.co.uk/elections

I find the tiling around Lyric Square slippery at the best of times, but today for the second time this month I have slipped rather dramatically. The first time it was on grease from the Hog Roast stall and today on a piece of vegetable from the Organic stall. Surely I can't be the only person who has experienced this? I have to admit I didn't report it, in fact I scuttled away both times totally embarrassed at the spectacle I made of myself. I'll be walking on the other side of the road in future!

Is it my imagination or are Parking Restriction Notices being put up too close to the date of the restriction coming into force? I do not use my car on a regular basis, so do not always check once parked. I have received a ticket and I am sure the notice was not displayed with the statutory period beforehand. I would be interested to hear of other residents' experiences.

Hammersmith and Fulham is in Rotten Boroughs in Private Eye again. This time it is about the costs likely to arise from the collapse of the Triborough arrangement with K&C and Westminster. Probably it was inevitable that a Labour run Council wouldn't be able to work in such a close arrangement with to Conservative run ones but it would appear that the costs of pulling out of the deal may be significant. The rather shady background to the contract given to Olympic Cars to transfer people with special needs around the borough gets another airing. Also there is talk of a payments contract signed with BT that was supposed to save millions but now will cost local taxpayers even though it was never implemented.

The Guide Dogs London team is looking for volunteers in the London W6 postcode who are interested in boarding our dogs in training. You would have the dog at home for evenings and weekends and bring it to a hub in W6 between 8-10am weekdays and collect it again between 4-6pm at the end of its ‘school day’! You would need to be able to commit to a period of 12-16 weeks and we will first carry out a home visit to ensure that your home is suitable for one of our dogs. You will receive 3 training sessions and then, if you are accepted, your first dog would be a trial period for us to assess your suitability and for you to decide whether it is the right role for you. If you are interested in finding out more about what is involved, please email Desirée Polluk our Volunteering Consultant by 12th May at firstname.lastname@example.org

Lucky members of Kensington Singers sang with Gary Barlow and the cast of the Girls at the Olivier Awards, to be broadcast this Tuesday April 11th on ITV.Members of Earls Court-based Kensington Singers were given an amazing opportunity to perform with Gary Barlow and the cast of his musical “The Girls” at the Royal Albert Hall for the opening of the 2017 Olivier Awards. Gary and co-writer Tim Firth were nominated for three awards. Hannah Brine, founder and leader of Victoria Park Singers said “It was again a real privilege for us to be performing with Gary and Tim. Many of us were involved in the 2016 Royal Variety Performance with them and it was a real highlight of the year. At the Oliviers we performed “Yorkshire” - a wonderful song about the customs of the north, with lyrics depicting the countryside and english traditions such as eating fish and chips. Its really moving and evocative. Thanks so much to Gary and Tim and everyone for inviting us!”The choir was then able to watch the ceremony which also included performances from Amber Riley (Dream Girls) and the cast of School of Rock and Jesus Christ Super Star. Kensington Singers new term starts on Monday 24th April and new singers are always welcome. Anyone who is interested in joining the choir should visit www.kensingtonsingers for more information and to sign up

As a former magistrate in the Youth Court at Hammersmith I'd like to say what a big mistake its closure will be. Those of us serving there believed we administered local justice, knowing the problems etc facing young people in our area. It was this local knowledge that, in my opinion, reflected the real meaning of 'justice'. If there were particular local problems such as an outbreak of youth on youth violence in Ravenscourt Park at one time we could deal with it in a way it would stop. Often I met youth outside court ( unlike some magistrates I did not hurry away). We would talk and quite often they would say that they got a good deal. Maybe one shouldn't do that. But that is again a real feeling for the community we lived in. It is disgrace to close it. Who makes these decisions I ask ?

The second programme last Wednesday provided nail-biting suspense just like the first. What the surgeons said in their comments and their attitudes was very telling. One said bitterly: "I just wish someone would tell me when I can get on with my job!" And this week another said that it didn't matter that tens of thousands had just been wasted because there was no ICU bed available for their patient and so the surgery had to be postponed: the surgery was the right thing to do for this patient! The team was assembled four weeks later.What this series shows us is how inefficient and wasteful of resources it is to have an underfunded acute service. The bottleneck here is the supply of ICU beds: we need to devise a system to provide more ICU beds in the winter. And more HDU and step-down beds and better discharge arrangements, yes I know.....But the pressure on the A&Es at St Mary's and Charing Cross predates the winter: neither A&E has met the 4 hours treat or discharge target at any time in 2016.With demand going up by 5% per year, but funding by only 1% the outcome is inevitable.

Dr Batten leaves Imperial when it is on its knees due to starvation of funds from Government. All the pressures which we see in the BBC series about Imperial, called "Hospital" (http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/group/b088rp6x),stem from one thing: not enough money to meet the much greater demand from a growing population and a more elderly population in NW London and from further afield. All this is about to get much worse under the NHS "Sustainability and Transformation Plan" or "Slash, Trash and Privatise" Plans: https://www.opendemocracy.net/ournhs/john-lister/councillors-must-look-before-they-leap-into-secret-nhs-cuts-plans.To its credit H&F have refused to sign the NW London STP. Councillors smelled the rat when they were asked in June 2016 to sign a two-page document. The NHS said: "Trust us!" as if they were children. The two pages contained no financial details and no clear explanation of the nature of the Plan.

Beware of computer scam. Just clicked on a link regarding a false claim that Professor Stephen Hawking had died. The screen froze and a warning was given that my computer was infected with a virus. The only way to get into my laptop was to shut down and restart. All is now fine. The warning was to phone 0800 086 9834 to speak to an engineer from Windows (lies). When I phoned the number the engineer wanted to take control of my computer and would have wanted a huge fee to put it right. When I told him the computer was now fine he slammed the phone down. If you google 0800 086 9834 you will see posts from many others who were given a fright.

HelloMy mum and dad had an accident on Blythe Road in December when they tripped over lose flagstones on the pavement and both fell. My dad suffered cuts and bruises but my mum broke her foot. My dad suffers from both Parkinson's disease and dementia and was distressed at the incident. Unfortunately they had just been to the horse show at Olympia and were heading back to the coach and it was at night so were unable to take photos of the flagstones and the exact location. We have reported this to the local council who have asked us to provide photographic evidence of the place where the fall occurred and the house number it was nearest.Sadly as my parents live up in Manchester, they are unable to get these photos and so we wondered if we might rely on human kindness of someone in the area obtaining these pictures for us. If you can help, please contact us on John.email@example.com for more details. Many thanks for reading and we hope you can helpJohn

Can someone identify a location from 1970's Hammersmith ? Message: It's possible that the site was where there are now houses/flats situated on the south side of Glenthorne Road opposite the old Eagle pub (now closed) and adjacent to the Housing Centre (now demolished). The site was used by the Council as a parking lot and then as temporary offices in Portakabins before moving out for the flats/houses to be built. The first picture is looking east towards the Mall.

Please come to the meeting on Tuesday 29th November at 7.30pm at Hammersmith Town Hall to hear why H&F and Ealing Councils are so worried about the future of health services in NW London's "footprint", which includes Chiswick and Hounslow.This isn't just about hospitals: it's a total upheaval of GP services, out-of-hospital services, adult social care, acute care and A&Es in the NW, SW and central London. NO part of the health service will be left unchanged.Please look at my article on the home page of www.saveourhospitals.netFor an explanation of the "direction of travel" of the NHS, John Furse, a resident of Chelsea, has written an article recently in KCW, the on-line e-magazine for Kensington, Chelsea and Westminster on: http://www.kcwtoday.co.uk/2016/11/stp/

On Sunday evening, 20th November, at 7.00pm Riding Lights Theatre Company will be performing Simeon's Watch, 'an engaging new play about family. A wonderful story about growing old, discovering hope and being surprised.'The play looks at issues around ageing, family and relationships, and the writing was informed by workshops with those living with dementia either directly or in the family. It seeks to bring out notes different from the themes of loss that dominates most work on the subject. To quote an audience member from an earlier performance on the tour, the show was "Brilliantly acted, subtle, hopeful and more uplifting than you might think!" Holy Innocents' Church is on Paddenswick Road, opposite John Betts School. Tickets are £12 (£10 concs) and are available on the door.

Mr Nichols was asked by reporter Martin Bashir regarding the E.U. crisis, "What is the Christian and Biblical response to this crisis."Mr Nichols replied, "It goes back to the very fundamental question posed by God [to Cain after he had murdered his brother Abel] "Are you not your brothers keeper."Genesis 4v9 actually reports that after God had asked Cain, "What have you done with your brother" it was Cain who stated, "I do not know. Am I my brother's keeper." According to the news report Mr Nichols credits God for uttering words that were uttered by the murderous Cain.

Are there any published figures on the growth in the local population? With huge developments like Fulham Reach and Sovereign Court we know it is going up a lot but I have never seen any numbers on the number of new homes being created and the likely increase in the number of residents. Is it impossible to predict because we don't know what the occupancy levels of the new flats will be?

Season starts next Wednesday and we play at Chiswick School on Burlington Lane.Its a 5 a side over 35's league and there are some decent teams in there so its competitive.We play Wednesday nights and the games are either at 7.30pm or 8.15pmIdeally want a squad of 8 and then it would be £40 each for the season which is usually 12 games.We have had a decent few seasons but need one or two more who can play each week as we often only have 5.We do rolling subs so would be great to have at least 6 each game to keep it fresh.If you fancy it email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Energy Therapists will be at the London Buddhist Vihara, The Avenue, W4 1UD on Monday, 10TH October, between 11am and 1pm (last session 12.45).

A number of therapists come in each month and give their services free. The Vihara kindly allow us to use the hall at no charge so a donation is most welcome as this enables us to give all donations to the Vihara.These sessions are not related to any religion, everyone is welcome.

“STP” closure of Ealing and Charing Cross Hospitals will be rubber-stamped at Imperial NHS Trust AGM: Wed 14th September at 17.15 at St Paul's Church, Hammersmith BroadwayDon't wait until “winter pressures” get NW London hospitals back in the news: Come and protest and ask questions now!The NHS “Sustainability and Transformation Plans” are the biggest cuts you've never heard of. Under the pretence that “virtual” treatments can be a proper substitute for care in A&Es and acute wards, the board of Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust will wave through their recently published pipe-dream plans (https://www.healthiernorthwestlondon.nhs.uk/sites/nhsnwlondon/files/documents/stp_june_submission_draft.pdf) at their Annual General Meeting at St Paul's Church, Queen Caroline Street, Hammersmith Broadway, at 17.15 on Wednesday 14th September.Come and protest outside the AGM at 16.45Come and ask questions insideRegister here (https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/imperial-college-healthcare-nhs-trust-agm-2016-tickets-26515191652) and get a ticket to the AGM. It will be possible to register questions in advance, as well as ask them on the day.After the CEO and Finance Officer's presentations there will be 35 minutes to ask questions of the Chairman, Sir Richard Sykes, and all the senior medical and management team. This is an unprecedented “consultation” with the general public.After the end of the AGM the management team will stay on for another 35 minutes for individual conversations.Bring your facts and figures about your treatment. Challenge the fanciful assumptions of the STP. This is YOUR chance to politely show the directors of a major NHS hospital trust that for the Dept of Health the game's up!

Has Andy Slaughter really not got more important issues to raise? For the record the Government stopped taking records of sighting in 2009 because somebody pointed out that flying saucers didn't actually exist.https://www.theyworkforyou.com/wrans/?id=2016-07-19.43413.h&s=speaker%3A11559#g43413.q0
