Public consultation on Mid Staffs

A public consultation on the future of Stafford Hospital opens later.

Administrators have said Mid Staffordshire NHS Trust should be dissolved, with many services at Stafford Hospital taken on by nearby hospitals.  Under the plans, maternity services and seriously ill children would no longer be treated at Stafford.

The proposals, announced last Wednesday, were initially met with criticism by people in the area.

Also in the news:  Doctors in Stoke-on-Trent are insisting the city’s hospital will be able to cope if services are moved there from Stafford Hospital.
