This is something we have had to put up with for four years now and I have reached a point where I have had enough of it. Its time to start exposing these people
Well, it looks very much like Stafford is to lose the A&E department at Stafford Hospital.
So, a big thank-you to Julie Bailey and her ‘Cure the NHS’ and to Staffordshire Newsletter, both of whom launched a determined and, obviously, successful campaign to get ‘something done’ about Stafford Hospital. Well done, something has now ‘been done’ – and believe me, it’s just the start.
I hope the campaigners for this action do not have the occasion to seek emergency help as the extended trip to Stoke or Wolverhampton for A&E could well cost them their life.
Well done Julie Bailey – I hope you are proud of yourself.

I can only conclude that you are very pleased with your cure for Stafford DGH. Well done! You have now ensured many more Staffordians WILL die thanks to your misplaced anger and grief! Very sorry for your loss but inflicting that same pain on others by proxy is not the way to go about it.
Once again congratulations on a campaign well fought I will ensure that the name Julie Bailey is on the lips of every man, woman and child that has to endure the suffering of losing a loved one due to the closure of Staffords A&E dept. £3million spent on a meaningless “enquiry” could well have been spent on medicine and doctors for our A&E dept. You and your poorly thought through campaign have ensured that money has been directed away from vital facilities at our hospital. A hospital that has saved lives of my family. Please abandon your campaign before any more damage is done. Many more lives will be lost in vain if this ridiculous campaign continues. Rest assured I will be in constant contact regarding this very dire issue.
Yours in hope,
I am dismayed that I have not received an acknowledgment for my message yesterday.
However, a question for your campaign. If the shocking and terrifying M5 disaster had occurred on the M6 between J13 and J14. At a similar time to the M5 crash (approximately 8.30pm) and Stafford DGH has had it A&E dept closed or working at limited capacity. How many lives do you think would be lost needlessly?
I realise the reason behind the proposed closure is down to cost. The unrelenting attack on our Hospital has now cost around £3,000,000. I believe this money would have been better spent on Doctors and Nurses. What does your campaign think?
I realise that there were problems at Stafford DGH and there should be answers given. Has this now gone on long enough? The hospital is changing you have won!
Perhaps you are not yet sated. I suggest the oncology dept should be the next target, or perhaps the childrens ward.
People will always die in a hospital, sometimes these deaths are avoidable. Doctors and nurses are human beings and will make errors from time to time. Especially when being driven by targets enforced by unthinking managers. I am curious to know whether you believe that the Doctors and Nurses at SDGH entered into their profession to help people or whether it was for the money? I doubt Nurses do it for the cash really I do.
The image of our Hospital has been forever tarnished now. What is it you require for victory in this campaign. So far it seems that you are intent on destroying the NHS. I hope this is wrong but I fear the worst.
I look forward to hearing from you.
