Time for Health Minister to save Bangor Hospital

I am profoundly disappointed that the Health Trust have decided to permanently close the 20 bed GP unit at Bangor Community Hospital despite a strong and vocal grass roots campaign in support of retention.

The figures and facts used to permanently close the unit simply don’t stack up and completely overlook the massive social and health benefits the unit has offered for many years.  


Whilst the Trust have decided to permanently close the unit the final decision now rests with the Health Minister. I would urge the DUP Minister to reflect upon the cross party campaign mounted against closure plus the strong local feelings expressed and reject this ill thought out decision.
