Jonathan Djanogly MP: Join the march to save Hinchingbrooke
22nd April 2016
Jonathan Djanogly MP is planning to lead a march through Huntingdon to Hinchingbrooke Hospital to show the strength of feeling locally against the planned merger with Peterborough.
The public march has been arranged for Saturday 30 April starting at 10am at Riverside Park by the boathouse in Huntingdon. The route will be along the High Street, through to George Street and Brampton Road before concluding at the hospital itself.
The march is open to all who care about our local hospital and is non-party political, being supported by the Hands off Hinchingbrooke group, with the sole aim of demonstrating to the board of Hinchingbrooke Hospital the level of support for the hospital’s independence.
“I recently met with the Chairmen of Peterborough and Hinchingbrooke Hospitals to discuss the current proposals for Hinchingbrooke. The outcome of that meeting was confirmation that a merger is still very much on the table, something I remain vehemently opposed to.
"It is clear that the two Trust boards are still forging ahead with their plans for a merger and that we must now step up the campaign to save Hinchingbrooke’s services and retain its independence. Please join me and other local campaigners on 30 April in Huntingdon to march against these proposals.
“We also need more people to keep signing the petition, which currently has over 4,000 signatures - http://www.jonathandjanogly.com/hospital_petition.”
