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.
