Wells Hospital

Off to Bodham this morning for the Primary Care Trust Board Meeting. 250 people were there from Wells. It was quite ordered but they certainly made their views felt. The PCT quite clearly has no intention of repopening the hospital in the near future. For the first time they admitted that financial considerations were governing their wider strategy. The fact of the matter is that if they don't attempt to balance their books and reduce their £1 million deficit they could be shut down by the Strategic Health Authority.

This evening I was at Blakeney to talk about constitutional issues. Tomorrow I'm off to Wells to do some filming before the debate in the evening with the Labour Candidate at North Walsham Community Centre.
