RMT have launched a new film and social media drive supporting workers involved in disputes across the country

THE Rail Union RMT have launched a new film and social media drive in support of both the:- "Keep The Guard" campaign and the workers involved in disputes across the country in defence of rail safety. A short film called:- "Unguarded," weaving together stories from three individual passengers based on feedback over the past year, is released and cascaded on social media platforms, from the 28 December 2017. It will be followed up with short films homing in on the individual passenger stories which will be released over the next 3 days. RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said:- "The RMT is committed to using every tool at our disposal to defend the role of the guard and to resist the profit driven moves to throw these safety critical staff off our trains. These films are based on real experiences that have been fed back to us by both passengers and our members who deal with the daily reality of the de-staffing of the railway. The themes that are a constant throughout are safety, security and accessibility on the railway and we will not allow those messages to get shoved aside in the barrage of rhetoric from the private companies, the Government and their cheerleaders at the Rail Delivery Group. RMT is confident this latest initiative will spark off a new surge in support for the:- "Keep The Guard" campaign and for our members who find themselves at the sharp end."

Merseyside residents can make a resolution in 2018 that changes someone else's life

THIS year 2,933 people in Merseyside registered to give blood for the 1st time; will you join them in 2018 and help to save lives? NHS Blood and Transplant is encouraging people to make a New Year's resolution that can change someone else's life, not just their own. In just 1 hour you could make a quick and easy resolution which saves lives.  Across England, 900,000 people gave blood in 2017. This New Year people in Merseyside are being asked to be part of an amazing group of people who save lives. NHS Blood and Transplant needs around 200,000 new donors every year to maintain the supply of life saving blood donations. Donors are needed from all blood groups and communities, but there is a particular need for more people from black and Asian communities to donate to help provide the right mix of blood.

Mike Stredder, Director of Blood Donation at NHS Blood and Transplant, said:- "It's New Year and like many of us, you may be thinking about the year ahead and some changes you'd like to make to your life. Perhaps you want to cut down on drinking, eat more healthily or are considering joining a gym? This year we are asking people in Merseyside to focus on giving and to register to give blood. It's easy to sign up and book your 1st appointment online or via our mobile phone app. By donating blood you will save or improve the lives of up to 3 people. Do something amazing in 2018. Give blood."

In general, as long as you are fit and healthy, weigh over 7 stone 12 lbs (50kg) and are aged between 17 and 66 (up to 70 if you have given blood before) you should be able to give blood. If you are over 70, you need to have given blood in the last two years to continue donating.  If you are already a blood donor you could consider becoming a platelet donor. NHS Blood and Transplant particularly needs donors with the A negative blood group as they can help any patient, regardless of blood type. One platelet donation can help us to three adults or 12 babies or children.  It's quick and easy to register to become a blood donor. Visit:- Blood.Co.UK or download the app by searching for:- ‘NHSGiveBlood' in the app store. You can also call the Donor Line on:- 0300 123 23 23.  You can donate platelets at your nearest donor centre. If you already give blood, ask about platelet donation at your next appointment.
