Back to reality

And this is not a bad thing at all.

Tomorrow is the date for the "Save our Community Hospitals" rally at Lyndhurst. Hopefully there will be a good turn out of people from all the localities who are affected by the proposed closures.

The closure threat is dressed up under a "consultation" on the future of services for older people but we still have not been given a clear picture of what proposed future services look like. Add this to the fact that in the early stages the local Primary Care Trusts appeared to be trying to set one community against another then it is little wonder that MPs who are usually on opposite sides of the political divide are actually working together on this one.

Since my return have also learned that Lawrie McMenemy (I am sure I have spelt that wrong so will apologise now) is supporting the cause.
