Elizabeth Savage started this petition to Southport and Ormskirk Hospital Trust

It's important that when people are facing the prospect or dealing with cancer that they are seen at a hospital local to them and one they are familiar with.  This relieves the stress for many of dealing with public transport and travelling to an unfamiliar place

The Trust have informed residents that the Breast Care Services are closing to new patients as of 1st September 2014,without consultation with local residents, as they are unable to recruit a radiologist.  This is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.

Please sign this petition and tell Southport and Ormskirk Hospital Trust that we want to be treated locally and that we don't want our services centralised in Liverpool or elsewhere.
