Weston Central Ward Councillor Mike Bell met with consultants from Weston Hospital this week to discuss their plans to keep 24/7 accident and emergency services open in the town.
Mike said: “I was pleased to meet with some of the consultants from Weston Hospital to hear more about their ideas to help save our A&E and stop plans for a downgrade of services. It’s vital that NHS bosses listen to the frontline doctors, nurses and other professionals on what works.
“The proposals from the NHS managers will see our A&E closed permanently overnight and a downgrade in emergency surgery and intensive care. But this is only the beginning, over five years, the plan is to close A&E completely and replaced it with a daytime-only GP-led Urgent Treatment Centre. This is a significant downgrading of our hospital and it’s vital members of the public have their say before it is too late.”
