Bring back A&E to Wycombe Hospital

Bring back A&E to Wycombe Hospital

Dear Anne,

Please bring back the A&E Unit back to Wycombe Hospital. A town this size needs an A&E.

We've heard all of the excuses to why it can’t be brought back - please now change things around and make it happen.

Why is this important?

High Wycombe is a large town and the nearest A&E units are at Wexham (in Berkshire) and Stoke Mandeville Hospital - both of which are approx an hours drive away from Wycombe centre. John Radcliffe is the other nearby Hospital in Oxfordshire.

Many people since they closed down the unit have suffered in pain and sadly there have been an increase in deaths as brought up in the recent condemning Keogh report. Please now listen to the people of Wycombe and the surrounding areas and bring this back. It doesn’t matter if you pay private medical insurance; everyone no matter who you are may need to use the A&E or their family and friends.
