People urged to speak out before healthcare services cut

Leamington Editorial 7th Dec, 2016   0

PATIENTS concerned about cuts at Warwick Hospital are advised to speak now or risk losing services forever.

Patient group Healthwatch Warwickshire has been working closely with South Warwickshire Foundation Trust bosses on the Sustainability and Transformation Plan and is urging people to ensure their voice is heard.

Healthwatch chief executive Chris Bain said: “The public should have been consulted on these decisions long ago. But before the changes are brought in it is a legal requirement that there should be a public consultation meeting in every affected Warwickshire district.

“This will be the chance for the public to have its say. I would urge everyone with concerns over these cuts to attend these meetings. It is vital that they make their feelings known at this stage.

“If people do not take advantage of this they will lose their one and only chance to have their say.

“Anyone with concerns over this can contact us with their experiences or fears and we will ensure we make their views known.”
