Reopen Burnley A&E Or Increase funding for Urgent Care

This petition had 13,791 supporters

Burnley A&E was closed down and the people from Burnley, Nelson,Colne, Padiham, Clitheroe, Whalley, Cliviger and Sabden now have to use Blackburn A&E. The time it takes to get to Hospital has quadrupled.  Waiting times have increased and nurses, doctors and staff are overworked.  Every day we are hearing about people who have lost loved one to mistakes made at Blackburn and the horror stories about people waiting on gurneys in corridors (some having suffered heart attacks or strokes) still not getting to see a doctor. 

The people of Burnley and surrounding towns deserve better. and who ever is in charge needs to find out why Burnley A&E was closed down, Where have the funds gone and what if anything can be done to either.
1) Open up A&E
2) Fund and improve facilities at Urgent Care to help ease the pressure at Blackburn A&E
