John Mann A different kind of MP
Nottinghamshire County Council is putting our NHS-run Drug and Alcohol Services out to tender. This means that our highly successful, GP-led local services could soon be dismantled and privatised.
Ten years ago John Mann MP led an inquiry into heroin use in Bassetlaw. The outcomes of the inquiry completely transformed the way addiction is treated locally.
John Mann commented: “Over the last decade, the results of this innovative, GP-led treatment have been groundbreaking, and an example that should be copied across the country.”
“The introduction of a locally based service, run by proven health experts, has led to a significant reduction in drug-related crime, deaths caused by overdoses, and patient admissions to the local hospital. More addicts are being rehabilitated and are now in employment thanks to these services.”
“We cannot afford to go back ten years, when we were facing a drugs and alcohol epidemic. This is an issue that affects us all.
“In my opinion this move by the County Council is not in the interest of patients, and will lead to the privatisation of our local NHS services.”
“I am now calling on constituents in Bassetlaw to help save our GP-led drug and alcohol services.”

Campaign to reduce the speed limit outside our schools
In 2011, 3,404 child pedestrians were injured in a road traffic accident as they made their way to or from school. 594 of these were killed or seriously injured. It has been shown that you are seven times more likely to survive if you are hit by a car driving at 20mph than if you are hit at 30mph. When 20mph limits have been introduced elsewhere there was a 21% reduction in road casualties.
