LETTER: Hospital should not be closed

Our much-loved local hospital, Newholme and Bolsover, is being closed to save money. I believe this is so that money is still available to send to India/Africa as overseas aid.

This is quite unacceptable and surely ‘charity should begin at home’?

We need our MP to represent our views and get this fixed. What do we have to do to light a bomb under Patrick McLoughlin MP and get him to actually do something for us?
