George supports Hospital demonstration

Posted on: 5th December 2011

The MP for West Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, Andrew George, attended the demonstration in support of West Cornwall Hospital on Saturday morning (3rd December) in Penzance.

Mr George, who successfully led the campaign 10 years ago to defend acute hospital services at West Cornwall, says that the local community should first safeguard and bolster existing services at the Hospital and then work to enhance them.

Mr George says, “This should be a demonstration of our support for the Hospital. We are not attacking the Trust. But we are making clear that, as a community, we are as determined as the Trust claims it is to first safeguard and then enhance the Hospital to provide a more active and local facing service in future. Local people are entitled to express their understandable anxiety about loss of services and the, albeit temporary, closure of one of the only two inpatient wards at the Hospital.

“This is a demonstration of support for a much appreciated local service.”
