JOIN THE FIGHT TO SAVE OUR BURNS UNITS
At the recent Full Council Meeting of St Helens Council we asked the Labour Group on behalf of Rainhill residents to move a motion which strongly objects to the relocation of the regional burns unit to Manchester.
A website has recently come online to fight the recommendation and is asking for your support.

Liza Williams of the Liverpool Daily Post wrote on August 27th :
"A CRUCIAL meeting to decide the fate of Merseyside burns care has been postponed until after Christmas.
Anger by campaigners and MPs over creating a burns “supra” centre in Manchester has forced health chiefs to delay a decision on the matter.
It is thought the community backlash against the recommendation, and a scrutiny panel put together by local councils, has prompted the delay of the meeting."
Cllr Marie Rimmer has been asked to chair the Scrutiny Panel
