Ensure 24 hour, urgent care is provided at the Minor Injuries Unit at Stroud Hospital.

We the undersigned note with dismay the proposed plan for overnight closure of the Minor Injuries Unit at Stroud Hospital which provides urgent out of hours care.

We further deplore NHS staffing shortages, which the current government is failing to address, that are resulting in unplanned overnight closures (such as the 67 overnight closures in a recent six month period, April - September 2015(1).

We ask that Gloucestershire Care Services and the Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group ensure that a 24 hour local urgent care service is provided at the Minor Injuries Unit at Stroud Hospital in order to meet local need, avoid long waits and reduce pressure on Emergency Departments."

This petition will be delivered to:
  • Chief Officer of Clinical Commissioning Group
    Mary Hutton
  • Chief Executive Officer of Gloucestershire Care Services
    Paul Jennings
