Bill Cash debates Stafford Hospital A&E

In a debate in Westminster Hall yesterday, Stone MP Bill Cash endorsed the arguments of Jeremy Lefroy (Member for Stafford) setting out why it is important for Stafford Hospital to return to full time working in A&E.Lefroy set out the importance of travel to other hospitals from Stafford – UHNS in Stoke is 19 miles from Stafford, New Cross in Wolverhampton is 18 miles, Manor in Walsall is 19 miles away while Burton is 27 miles distant.Cash emphasised that it is vital for the hospital A&E to return to full time working order - especially for those deeper rural areas in Staffordshire that don’t have immediate travel access to other local hospitals.
