38 Degrees: An Update

I have been informed by the leadership of 38 degrees that over 200 constituents would like to talk to me about my views on the leadership of 38 degrees and the NHS in Wales.

I am more than happy to speak to people living in Monmouthshire about my criticism of 38 Degrees and the NHS in Wales. Please see my open letter to constituents below:


Dear Sir/Madam

Somebody called Becky has been in touch me with me to say that you would like to discuss my comments about 38Degrees and the NHS in a public meeting.

I would like to make clear that my criticisms of 38 Degrees are entirely directed at their leadership who have close links to the Labour Party and who have refused to say anything at all about the disgraceful state of the NHS in Wales which lags far behind the standard of treatment in England.

Only today I have learned that members of the health Select Committee in the Welsh Assembly have voted to refuse to listen to evidence from a Labour MP on how bad things are. For a committee to refuse to hear from witnesses who have relevant information is unprecedented. We not only have a second rate health service but politicians who are not even prepared to listen to evidence on the matter.

38 Degrees refuse to speak out about this, the longer waiting times, the refusal to allow Welsh patients to be treated in England, the longer ambulance response times or the restrictions on cancer drugs.

I would be delighted to discuss my criticisms of the leadership 38 Degrees with you personally in the hope that you will be able to persuade them to stop ignoring the poor NHS treatment we are getting in Wales.

If you would like to get in touch with me please contact me directly on daviesd@parliament.uk with your contact details and I will be in touch about a meeting.


David Davies MP
