To: Western Health and Social Care Trust
stop down grading our Hospital
we demand that the trust cease all downgrading of the South West Acute Hospital in Enniskillen immediately, a process they have been involved in for the past number of years, the final straw is plans to move the exemplary stroke unit out of the SWAH to either Omagh or Derry/Londonderry, this hospital is a state of the art and merits the complete opposite of what the Trust are planning, we the people of Fermanagh demand that more effort from the WH&SCT to turn the downgrading process around and return more acute services along with adequate staffing to ensure our Hospital meets and even go beyond the purpose it was constructed for
Why is this important?
the people of Fermanagh fought hard against strong opposition to have this Acute hospital located in Enniskillen, so it is important that all efforts to thwart it's advancement be met with strong opposition by the very people it is to serve, our councilor's have done little or nothing to halt the axe being used in the down grading process, instead are swallowing excuse after excuse from the WH&SCT, our MLAs are doing even less, so let's see what the people can achieve
How it will be delivered
this petition will be delivered directly to the CEO of the WH&SCT when we have enough signatories or at end of its term, whichever comes first
