​Consultation Period Surrounding Closure Of Bolsover Community Hospital Ends

Consultation Period Surrounding Closure Of Bolsover Community Hospital Ends

The consultation period surrounding the proposed closure of Bolsover Community Hospital finished yesterday but it is thought the result won’t be announced for a few months.

John Dale from the Mansfield Socialist Party has been campaigning to keep the Hospital open and he spoke about how it will affect people in the Bolsover district, “These small community hospitals are vital for elderly frail patients, who cannot manage on their own at home, but with the intensive physiotherapy and support from nursing and other therapists can get back on their feet and live a more independent life again.”

When the plans to close the Hospital were first released back in June, Bolsover Dennis Skinner said, "They had better get rid of that hospital idea. It won't wash with the Bolsover people. This is a market town, they lost all the pits, a lot of the pubs have shut, and they are not going to stand for this." A campaign to keep the Hospital open has a Facebook page with almost 800 members, and around 2,600 people have signed their petition - 1,000 on paper and another 1,600 online.
