Liz Jarvis and Eastleigh Liberal Democrats are campaigning to help save Accident and Emergency at the Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester.
The Conservatives have neglected the NHS for years. Now there's a proposal to close Winchester's A&E. Despite all the promises, these new proposals mean more cuts to services in Winchester - which serves the majority of the Eastleigh Constituency.
Liz Jarvis said: "Local NHS services are already overstretched thanks to this Conservative government and I've heard from lots of Eastleigh residents who are very worried about these proposals, which will have a knock on effect on services at the Southampton hospitals. It's hugely concerning.
"It is also a concern that consultant-led maternity care could be affected.
“We cannot have a situation where people are unable to access the emergency care they need or having to travel miles and wait even longer for treatment or where our local NHS services are put under even more strain by the closure of the A and E department at the Royal Hampshire County Hospital."
Our NHS is at breaking point. The closure of the A&E at Royal Hampshire County Hospital would be catastrophic for health outcomes in Eastleigh.
