FoD action on the community hospital closures

10 December 2017

The Forest of Dean Green Party wrote to the Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (GCCG) at length in response to the GCCG's request for feedback on the consultation process regarding the closure of the Dilke and Lydney hospitals. The points we raised reflected concerns raised by our members and the community generally.

Our questions and their responses can be seen here.

We remain concerned that the conclusion from the consultation has been predetermined and that the GCCG is not open to alternative ways to maintain or improve services for our community and that they are acting only under instruction from our national government to cut costs.

Please send us any comments or suggestions.
