No More #BrumCuts

999_No_More_Brum_Cuts.jpgBirmingham’s 999 services are on the brink

Policing cut - West Midlands Police budget has been cut by £126 million in the last five years, twice that of Surrey’s, despite the fact that crime has risen. We've lost 1,500 police officers under David Cameron but crime, violent crime and sexual assaults have all increased.

Fire services slashed - In five years we've seen 30 per cent cuts to fire and rescue services in the West Midlands. We've lost 275 fire fighters. Fire stations are at breaking point, covering much larger areas than before.

A&E in crisis - More patients are waiting over 4 hours to be seen in A&E, with some hospitals failing to see as many as 20 per cent of patients in the target time. Police cars are taking people to A&E and ambulances are queuing because hospitals are too full to admit patients.

Birmingham has been hit harder by Tory cuts than other areas. The government admits this but won't change the rules to give us our fair share now - robbing our city of another £98 million over the next two years. We want a fair deal for Birmingham - No More #BrumCuts.
