Sir Bill Cash MP - Children’s Emergency Centre at County Hospital

Tuesday, 30 August, 2016

In relation to the news that the Children’s Emergency Centre in Stafford has been temporarily closed on safety grounds, Stone MP, Sir Bill Cash said –
“The Children’s Emergency Centre at County Hospital, along with the paediatric clinics and outpatients, provides a vital service to my constituents.
“I am working with and strongly support the hard work put into protecting and preserving this vital service by Jeremy Lefroy and it is crucial that necessary training is carried out and that the Centre is put back in service without delay.
“There are important questions to be asked over the decision to suspend the service and the plans to reinstate it – and the Acting Chief Executive of the Trust will need to answer them.
“I have written to both the Trust and the Health Secretary, supporting the efforts of the Member for Stafford, and insisting we have children’s services accessible to all, and pointed out that our services must be accessible to all parts of our area, including those in or nearby to towns and in the rural villages and deeply rural areas.
“I am pushing for this service to be restored as soon as possible.”
