ONE of the tiniest villages in Huntingdonshire last week hosted by far the best attended meeting of the three-month consultation on the future of Hinchingbrooke Hospital. More than 50 people turned up at Hamerton Village Hall - village population 110 - to quiz Cambridgeshire Primary Care Trust chief executive Chris Banks on the rescue proposals for the hospital. An earlier meeting in St Ives attracted just three members of the public. The consultation ended yesterday (Tuesday) and the PCT is expected to take final decisions in late June. After the Hamerton meeting, which attracted residents from across north-west Huntingdonshire, MP Shailesh Vara said he had pressed Mr Banks on the adequacy of the £2.5million-a-year extra that the PCT is spending on moving some hospital services into the community, the lack of capital investment in equipment and expanding GPs' surgeries to cope with the extra work, and the difficulty people in rural areas had in getting to medical facilities.
