Keep Cirencester Hospital open overnight

Gloucestershire Care Services Trust have announced that a review into Cirencester Hospital's Minor Injuries Unit (MIU) will be undertaken.

Concerns are growing that this could mean the overnight MIU at Cirencester could be closed.

One of the NHS' founding principles is that healthcare is accountable to the public, communities and patients. Our community now needs to show that this is a vital service to our community that should be kept.

Please support my campaign to keep Cirencester MIU open overnight in order to continue the excellent service provided to the 20,000 residents in Cirencester and the local area.

We the undersigned ask that Gloucestershire Care Services, Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group and Gloucestershire County Council ensure that a 24 hour local urgent care service is provided at the Minor Injuries Unit at Cirencester Hospital in order to meet local need, avoid long waits and reduce pressure on Emergency Departments.

    They closed Morton in the marsh and Bourton on the water hospitals to save money but then spent millions on building a new hospital at Morton in the marsh. Save money and keep our local hospital open.

    This would be a hugely detrimental to the village of South Cerney as it is at least a 40minute journey to Swindon or Cheltenham if you have transport. What a terrible thing to try and do. The amount of saving is small. How about sending Swindon and Cheltenham to Cirencester on alternate weeks and giving the rest of society a taste of what we would have to put up with.
