New update on Lucy's work to keep A&E open at night

Lucy Allan MP has been working with local Councillors, the Hospital Trust, fellow MPs, Health Ministers and NHS bodies, such as NHS Improvement, the Care Quality Commission and the NHS Education England, to secure the doctors and nurses needed to keep the A&E open 24/7. She also takes every opportunity to raise the issue in Parliament and has also applied for a full Parliamentary debate.

Lucy Allan said: "The ambition is to give the Hospital Trust the help and support necessary to find the doctors and nurses that the hospital needs to keep A&E open at night. In addition to helping to source doctors, I am making the case for the regulatory bodies to step in and provide formal support to the management during this period of crisis for the Trust. The Trust has failed to properly plan for the needs of my constituents and has failed to seek the help it needs. This is wholly unacceptable given the consequences for our community. Clearly there is no magic wand at this late stage - no one can suddenly magic up doctors out of thin air and we all understand that. There are different solutions to explore and the Hospital Trust must leave no stone unturned - together we will help them do that.

"If there are closures at night it is a sure sign that this management team is not fit for purpose and clearly not fit to progress a multi million pound reorganisation that is Future Fit if they can't run an A&E properly.
