We need a big debate in Marlborough on the NHS’ future demands doctor

Marlborough needs to stage a Big Debate on the future of the health and well-being services for the area as a result of the controversial NHS reforms now currently put on hold by the coalition government.

The idea has been suggested by Dr Nick Maurice, in the wake of Excalibur Project conference held at St John's School and Marlborough College last month, which posed the question, How can Marlborough become a leading international hotbed of learning by 2020?

The event was attended by more than 100 people, ranging from Marlborough school headteachers, parents and children too.

“A similar exercise on the subject of health could be undertaken in Marlborough – opening up a wide-ranging debate,” Dr Maurice, whose family founded the town’s medical practice, says in a letter to Marlborough News Online.

“We could ask the question, ‘How can Marlborough become the healthiest community in the UK with the greatest sense of well-being in 2020?’

“This might be a project that could be funded by the Friends of Savernake Hospital and the community.”

He believes a skilled organiser “could be brought together with representatives of as wide a cross-section of the population as possible” to pose the important questions about the future of the NHS, which is currently causing turmoil between the three main political parties.

And he adds: “Those questions might include, what is the current state of health and well-being of the population of Marlborough? What are the major health and social problems facing the community?”

“And what are the barriers to improving that situation?”
