Text of Petition

Until the Health Minister has had time to consider Prof Marcus Longley’s recommendations on rural healthcare in Wales - a study that was commissioned by the Minister himself in January of this year - we, the undersigned, call on the National Assembly of Wales to urge the Welsh Labour Government to delay decision on Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board’s Business Case aimed at downgrading our Memorial Hospital to a mere ‘Memorial Centre’.
