Groups to contact/contacted

This is what I am sending out….

We are contacting you to inform you that, 38 Degrees Skipton with the support of 38 Degrees Keighley is holding this event.

If a representative of your group would like to attend and ask a question of Dr Wrigley, after his talk, could you please submit it to me at in order to give groups priority and to avoid duplication.

Overtly party political questions will not be accepted. 38 degrees is an issue driven community and the aim of this meeting is to inform the public of the situation not to lay blame or tell them how to vote. Dr Wrigley has been chosen because of his knowledge and as a representative of the GP’s a position into which he was voted, when selected for the BMA UK Council.

Thanks Viv Dawson for Skipton 38 Degrees.

plus a leaflet




Viv Political parties, doctors surgeries (done as far as possible – about half don’t have email addresses. I have asked Keighley members if they could print this out and take it in to a surgery on the list near them – these include Farfield, Holycroft. Kilmeny,Ling House, all Keighley and Oakworth, Haworth, Silsden,  Ilkley Wharfedale and Moor, Grange Park Burley. I will take one into Dynely House.

Kath  I have emailed the public meeting leaflet to the following unions/professional bodies and asked them to distribute it to their members in the Airedale/Keighley/Skipton area.  I rang most of them first to tell them about the meeting and get an email address. The response was positive from all the union contacts I spoke to.

  1. Bradford Trades Council
  2. Bradford Unison  – has union members in Airedale hospital and some in Skipton Hospital
  3. GMB local branch contact
  4. Unite (branch that covers Bradford/Airedale/Craven)
  5. Bradford Communications Workers Union (covers BD postcodes)
  6. Yorkshire and Humberside Royal College of Nursing

I am waiting to hear back from the North Yorkshire Unison branch which covers Health and will send them the leaflet once I get the relevant email.
