I’ve sent email below to Nick Boles this morning.
Good Afternoon Mr Boles,
A year ago the overnight closure of Grantham A&E looked to be coming to an end. Sufficient staff had been recruited and everything appeared positive.
Then, NHS Improvement became involved, referred the decision to the East of England senate and the reopening didn’t happen.
At the time you were quoted in the press:
“I am very disappointed that NHS Improvement has intervened to stop ULHT announcing the reopening of Grantham A&E at night.”
“I believe their actions are legally dubious and morally indefensible.”
“I will be raising the matter in the House of Commons at the earliest opportunity.”
Can you tell me (and the rest of your constituents) what action you’ve taken in the past year to challenge these decisions?
I look forward to your early response, given the jeopardy your constituents are in while the overnight closure continues.
Thanks & regards
