Keep East Midlands Heart Unit Open
The East Midlands Congenital Heart Unit has been recently threatened with closure, this meaning the vital hub for major heart surgery and annual check-ups would be shut and that anybody needing checkups or emergency specialist care, would have to travel to Birmingham, this time could be the difference between life or death. The busy unit in Glenfield Hospital was threatened with closure 3 years ago. I wrote to several MP's including David Cameron and Kenneth Clarke along with Her Majesty The Queen. My campaign was succesul, but this time it has been much more difficult and have had the subject taken to the House of Commons.
