St Richard's Hospital, Chichester

Plans to possibly downgrade this hospital are underway, ie remove its A&E facilities.

In the last 6 years I have been treated in A&E and the main hospital - and have had exemplary service in both instances. It would be an absolute travesty for this lifeline of the community to lose ANY of its facilities.

I urge you to support the petition AGAINST any downgrade discussions.

Notes: The latest MORI satisfaction index for acute trusts, which is produced each year, shows that the trust has the highest level of patient satisfaction in the south-east. St. Richard's hospital is top out of 26 hospitals in the south-east for patient satisfaction.
