Save our Maternity

Maternity services at our local hospital are under threat. Lib Dem Prospective MP Jackie Porter is campaigning to protect our local NHS.

Over 2000 people have signed Jackie’s petition to save maternity services under threat due to a review of hospital services. 

The review is proposing downgrading maternity provision at the Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester by removing consultant cover. A new hospital would be built outside Winchester, in Basingstoke and Deane.

Jackie said: “I am deeply concerned by these proposals to downgrade maternity services.

"I understand how important a maternity unit with consultant care is. When I was giving birth to my son, I experienced complications and needed a blood transfusion. Having doctors on hand saved my son’s life and mine.

“Please join my campaign to save our vital local maternity services.”

Tory MP’s broken maternity promise

Before being elected Tory MP Steve Brine said that consultant-led maternity services would be his ‘red line’ and that “without them you don’t have a District General Hospital worthy of the name.”

Now Brine is welcoming changes that will mean there is no hospital with these services in Winchester - exactly what he said he would campaign against.

    I was born here and had my daughter here the care was impeccable, so much better than what I have heard from friends who had there’s in the princess Anne. We should be proud to have a maternity unit such as Winchester.
