Save Orsett Hospital from closing

Stop the proposed closure of Orsett Hospital, Thurrock

Why is this important?

The services they provide is very important to the people of thurrock, and closing Orsett will put even more pressure on Basildon Hospital which is under immense pressure already not helped by the proposed closure of the A&E at Southend Hospital.

With thousands of new homes planned for the borough, it would be better to save Orsett Hospital and expand some other services, to help cope with a rise in demand in the area.

  • I have to use orsett hospital a lot,to close it will cause me a lot of problems.
  • It’s a very busy lovely local hospital. Basildon and other units will not cope with the additional influx of business.
