Extraordinary NHS meeting over who will run services
HEALTH chiefs are poised to make a major decision on the future of the NHS in Gloucestershire today.
The board of NHS Gloucestershire will hold an extraordinary meeting, at Sanger House on Gloucester Business Park, to decide whether community health services will be run by an NHS Trust, or opened up to bids from the private sector.
It marks a decisive moment in campaigners' battle to keep the county's community hospitals, and health services in the NHS.
Earlier plans to transfer Gloucestershire's community hospitals, clinics and health services to a "social enterprise" were halted during an eleventh hour legal challenge by retired Stroud railway worker Michael Lloyd.
