Journey delays could kill

REDUCING established services such as the accident and emergency and maternity departments at Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Huntingdon would put some people at risk and not benefit anyone living in Cambridgeshire, and particularly those in living in or around St Neots.
Last Friday, I had an appointment to attend Addenbrooke's Hospital which is approximately 23.3 miles from St Neots via the A428. The journey took one hour, 20 minutes (not including car-parking time).
If my sums are correct, this equates to 17 miles per hour. As far as I am aware there were no traffic accidents.
Enclosed with my appointment letter was a slip which stated: 'Parking at Addenbrooke's is limited. Please use public transport if possible."
In this instance, public transport would have taken a patient longer to reach the hospital.
Changes should only be made to benefit patients.
- 1 Jail for paedophile who photographed abuse
- 2 New cops truck catches out law-breaking drivers in successful week
- 3 Ian Stewart 'appeared odd' at wife Diane's funeral, court hears
- 4 Face coverings no longer mandatory indoors as England returns to Plan A
- 5 Motion passed to send letter to Michael Gove after objections to incinerator plan
- 6 Mother of Rikki Neave 'told the truth and nothing but the truth', jury told

- 8 Charming 'cakery' selling sweet treats opens in Ramsey
- 9 Brampton Park golfers swing into action to raise money for hospice

What is proposed will certainly not do that because some will die before they reach hospitals situated at Cambridge or Peterborough.
