Public consultation on changes to Weston’s A&E department begins
PUBLISHED: 08:00 13 February 2019
Consultation on proposed changes to Weston General Hospital and its A&E opening hours begins today (Wednesday).
The Mercury reported last week the governing body of Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) voted for a 14-week Healthy Weston consultation to take place.
People will be able to share their views on a range of proposals for service improvements in the area.
The CCG recommended A&E should not reopen at nights in the long term, with a medically-led service between 8am-10pm seven days a week its preferred option.
The first public meeting on February 26 will run from 6.30-8.30pm at the Winter Gardens.
The consultation will run until May 24, with a pause in public meetings during April ahead of local elections.
