We the undersigned oppose:
Proposals by the Mid and South Essex NHS Success Regime to downgrade Southend A&E in any form. We believe that downgrading Southend A&E in favour of transferring all 999 emergencies to Basildon Hospital will cost lives in the Rochford and Rayleigh area due to increased ambulance journey times to Basildon and the extra burden on Basildon Hospital services.
We call on Rochford District Council and Essex County Council to:
- Oppose any downgrade of services at the A&E department at Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
- State publicly that the only acceptable A&E provision at Southend Hospital which their Council will support is one which maintains a full 24 hour emergency care facility which accepts all 999 blue light Ambulances.
