Ray Tallis, former Professor of Geriatric Medicine at Hope Hospital (now Salford Royal Hospital), has recently been acclaimed for his latest presentation at the Edinburgh Festival but now he's coming back `home' for a special talk this Monday 16th September.

Professor Tallis has co-edited a collection of observations by himself and top medics about how successive governments have undermined the much loved NHS, this year celebrating its 65th birthday. The book, NHS SOS: How The NHS Was Betrayed, includes contributors ranging from Oliver Huitson (Open Democracy), to Dr John Lister (London Health Emergency), to Dr David Wrigley (BMA GP committee), and explains what people can do to try and stop the privatisation and destruction of the public service on which everyone in Salford relies.

"Professor Tallis is a superb speaker and broadcaster and his recent critique of the health service changes must be heard in the city where he practised medicine for many years" says Mary Eminson, spokesperson for Salford NHS Support Group "When we collected signatures for our 38 degrees petition to Salford CCG, earlier this year, we discovered how much local people care about the NHS and how much they oppose the privatisation which threatens quality and integrity of the service.

"Professor Tallis' talk gives us a chance to understand the risks and impact of recent and current changes, and helps us make sense of the problems the NHS faces – so that we can see through the rhetoric and decide what we can do to make sure the NHS is an efficient, effective, caring and comprehensive service which we can all be proud of" she adds "If you want a first-hand well-informed view, instead of political posturing, this talk is one you should attend. As Professor Tallis is not charging us a fee, the talk is extremely reasonably priced."

I would encourage anyone to try to hear Ray Tallis speak. The NHS is too precious for us to allow it to be stealthily unpicked. That is what is happening. Also all the complaints we are hearing recently about the NHS are being emphasised to soften us up for the take over by private health companies whose main aim is profit. Don't be deceived by the NHS logo on the letter head from a private concern; they are allowed to do this for a while before they use their own . All part of the 'big con' If you can't get to the talk on Monday. Do borrow the book or check web site. This is too important to by pass.

Thousands of people packed Albert Square in Manchester last night to voice anger over US President Donald Trump's visit to the UK.

'MANIAC' TRUMP NOT WELCOME HERE

A red open top double decker bus toured Salford this morning covered in slogans reading 'Trump Go Home'. It stopped off at Salford Precinct, Salford Royal Hospital, Langworthy Road and the Civic Centre before heading off to Manchester.

The bus was sponsored by Swinton-based Mary Monson Solicitors, and Mary Monson told the Salford Star that "the idea that he'll come and be feted like a respectable person is appalling". Meanwhile Paul Kelly, President of Salford TUC, called Donald Trump an "ultra-capitalist maniac".
