NO to a smaller hospital, NO to cuts of £116 million

REVIEW the decision to cut the size of the Royal Bolton Hospital and make cuts of £116 million to NHS services

Why is this important?

THE HOSPITAL IS NOW REGULARLY ON `BLACK ALERT` WHICH MEANS IT CANNOT ACCEPT ANY ADMISSIONS DUE TO LACK OF AVAILABLE BEDS AND BOLTON PATIENTS FALLING ILL/BEING INJURED HAVE TO BE FERRIED TO SALFORD OR WIGAN.
MEETING AT `FRIENDS MEETING HOUSE` SILVERWELL STREET BOLTON ON THURSDAY 23RD MARCH AT 7.30 : SPEAKER DR JACKIE GRUNSELL GP.

Reasons for signing

  • Eight years ago I was diagnosed with cancer by the Breast Cancer Unit at the Royal Bolton Hospital where I received very rapid treatment and excellent aftercare for the following five years. I had an operation within 8 weeks of receiving a letter saying that a mammogram needed to be repeated. This was a very stressful time and it is unthinkable that patients today cannot receive such speedy attention or the continuous care of highly trained specialists at the same hospital.
