Please find below the response from the HOLD team to a letter published in The Forester Newspaper today from a District Councillor. This statement is from the HOLD Campaign and quotes should be attributed to the HOLD Campaign rather than any individual.
“HOLD’s aim has been misrepresented by a councillor on The Forester’s letters page. HOLD is not only demanding the NHS Trust drops its proposal and takes heed of the result of the consultation – that a majority has failed to back the proposal to close our two hospitals and replacing them with one with half the number of beds. We also insist that the £11m and more is invested in the Dilke and Lydney Hospitals. To form a valid opinion, it helps to know the facts.”
