I AM totally in agreement with the concerns of Richard Oliver (Monstrous private bid for Hinchingbrooke, Letters, April 28).

To expect a business to come in, take on a £38.9million debt, run a hospital short of resources and just breaking even, and make a profit within seven years is Alice in Wonderland thinking.

The only possible way that this can work is to lose major services such accident and emergency and maternity.

Hinchingbrooke Hospital will be my main priority if elected as an Independent Member of Parliament for Huntingdon on Thursday, May 6.

My first phone call will be to the East of England Strategic Health Authority to say that the local community has voted, and that they need to put this costly process of privatisation on hold with immediate effect.
