This is the absolute worst sort of witless hospital closure opposition from idiots with no understanding of how to run a health service.
Therefore it is entirely well deserved for the SNP who have used the tactic with gusto elsewhere.
A brand new, specialist tertiary children's hospital has opened less than 5 miles away. It has specialist maternity services integrated with both paediatric and adult intensive care. It is the safest and best place you can go to give birth or for your child's ill health to be investigated.
The idea that any sane health service would keep the Royal Alexandra children's ward open in the long term is ridiculous.
The protestors should be told to fuck right off.
I doubt it will make a huge difference to this election but it just annoys me as it represents the worst sort of health service local hospital obsession by the public that stops the NHS from being able to deliver the best quality services owing to the ignorance of the public.
