5,000 names on petition
CAMPAIGNERS have gathered 5,000 signatures calling for health services to be kept public, as the consultation on the future of the NHS in Gloucestershire reaches its final week.
They are calling on NHS Gloucestershire to keep community health services public and set up a new NHS Trust, rather than hold a tender process which could be open to private companies.
Stroud Hospitals League of Friends has also backed the call to retain services in the NHS; called Option 1 in the consultation. "We felt that this preference clearly reflected the majority view of our members," said the league.
Stroud Town Council has also backed Option 1. Option 2 involves holding a tender process which would be open to private companies.
