We have been reliably informed that the NHS in Gloucestershire is about to publish plans to downgrade the A&E Department at Cheltenham General Hospital.
Cheltenham is a town of 115,000 people and Cheltenham General's A&E is used by people living in the Cotswolds, Tewkesbury and elsewhere in Gloucestershire.
Cheltenham deserves an A&E and Gloucestershire Royal simply doesn't have capacity anyway to handle all the county's demand.
Show your opposition to these plans by signing our petition below. NHS managers might think this is a done deal but they are wrong. The fightback starts today.
Alex Chalk, MP for Cheltenham
Laurence Robertson, MP for Tewkesbury
Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown, MP for The Cotswolds
