Don’t believe North Cambs Hospital is safe, reader says

As far as North Cambs Hospital is safe, may I remind you of what happened with the Bowthorpe maternity hospital.

It must have been nearly 35 years ago now, that I along with many others, marched through Wisbech to save our local maternity unit where my two eldest were born.

We were promised, by a prominent minister, that the Bowthorpe was safe and that the government of the day was committed to small local units.

Needless to say, by the time I had my third child, she was born in King’s Lynn, under very different circumstances. People of Wisbech beware
