A group campaigning for Weston General Hospital’s A&E to re-open at night is calling for people to share their experiences of 
the department.

Save Weston A&E was set up by North Somerset and Weston Trades Council, Protect Our NHS and Weston Labour Party.

The A&E closed overnight three months ago, after it was deemed to be unsafe by a healthcare watchdog due to its low staffing levels.

Save Weston A&E will host a rally on November 4 in the Italian Gardens.

A spokesman from the group said: “We would like to set up a wall of stories from residents and visitors to the town about their experiences of the hospital and A&E.

“We would like stories from both before the closure and after the closure; we want to know how well the department has operated in the voices of the people and visitors to Weston.”

People can email dave.townsend@westonlabour.org.uk to share their stories.
