Without our fantastic NHS my husband would not be alive today. His awful disease was discovered too late and he did not drink or smoke, nor is he overweight.
Why close a facility that provides a service for all, rich or poor, regardless of background? Do developers want the land? Or have previous Labour and Conservative governments been lying to us when they said the NHS was safe in their hands?
