Practice backs radiotherapy campaign

STEVENAGE’S only specialist orthodontic practice has really got its teeth into The Comet’s and the town’s MP Stephen McPartland’s fight for better local cancer care.

Mr McPartland visited the town centre practice yesterday, Wednesday, which has been providing patients with petition forms to complete.

He said: “I want to thank Rhonda and Jonathan from Stevenage Orthodontics for supporting the campaign and helping us to move towards 2,000 signatures.

“This is exactly the support we need, to demonstrate we have the support of local people and local businesses.

“I am currently talking to some of the major employers in the town and hope they will throw their support behind our campaign also.

Jonathan Alexander, practice principal, said “We are pleased to have taken a pro-active role in supporting the radiotherapy campaign and are encouraging our patients to sign The Comet petition.

We have also offered to post the petitions in for those who might not be able to sign up online”.

So far we have received 710 forms and this added to the number of Facebook fans, 1,251, takes the total figure to a staggering 1,961 supporters.

But to secure the unit we need more completed forms so keep them rolling in and we can break the 2,000 mark.

As well as signatures, we want to hear from people who have been forced to endure the long arduous trip to Mount Vernon Hospital in Northwood, Middlesex, for treatment, and any stories from the loved ones of cancer sufferers concerned by the lack of local provision.
