Royal Liverpool Hospital
By Becca McCarthy
A hospital in Liverpool still stands half-finished and unused since construction company Carillion went bust in January.  It means thousands of people are not getting the NHS service they deserve. 
Just last month the government announced they would find the money to complete a hospital in Birmingham that was also left unfinished after Carillion’s collapse.  So a group of 38 Degrees-ers from Liverpool are calling for the government to step in and fund the completion of the new Liverpool hospital too. 
It’s been hitting headlines but what’s missing is the public’s voice. People sending a clear message: this isn’t right. That’s where we come in. If thousands of people from across the UK tell the government they need to step in and find a solution, it could be enough to make them act.
Will you sign the petition and ask the government to fund the completion of the Royal Liverpool Hospital? It takes just 30 seconds:
Politicians in Liverpool are already speaking out and asking the government to step in.  But even though the government said they were fully committed to completing the hospital in July, they’ve taken no steps to sort the situation out.  So now we need national support, which means people across the country stepping up and calling on the government to act.
38 Degrees members have a great track record when it comes to changing the face of their local NHS services. Last year Andy saved his local A&E department in Essex after thousands of people got behind him in his fight.  And just a few months ago 38 Degrees member Tony saved North Tees A&E from closing its doors.  When we come together, we’re powerful.
