Public meetings to discuss changes to Weston health services

The future of health services comes into focus again this week.

Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is plotting changes and is seeking views.

Its Healthy Weston proposals - which include closing Weston General Hospital A&E at night - are out for consultation.

Meetings to discuss the plan were suspended for much of April and May due to regulations over what could be said in the run up to elections.

Consequently, the CCG extended the consultation until June 14.
