I have been dealing with this issue for a few months and am working closely with the Save Alton Ward campaign group.
About 150 people attended the meeting at Clay Cross Social Centre and it is clear that people feel very strongly about Alton Ward staying open.
Councillor Brian Wright did a fantastic job of chairing the meeting and four senior representatives from the NHS were on hand to listen to people’s opinions and answer questions.
I will continue to monitor the situation and make sure that Clay Cross Community Hospital keeps everyone up to date with any developments or proposals.
Please do get in touch if you would like more information.
