Bill Cash MP raises concerns over temporary overnight closure of Stafford Hospital A&E Department

 Press release 14/11/2011

Following the proposed temporary overnight closure of the A&E department beginning in December, MP for Stone, Bill Cash said:
 
“It has become clear that the A&E Department has not been able to recruit the necessary doctors and that the services of the military emergency medicine personnel have been put in place for a temporary period. 
 
“My constituents find the subsequent introduction of a temporary overnight closure of the Department unacceptable and I remain gravely concerned.
 
“I am taking those concerns up urgently with the Secretary of State for Health and the Chief Executive of the Trust to make clear that the night-time closure of the Department is unacceptable.”
