KNUTSFORD residents have two more chances to give their views on the future of a ward at the town’s community hospital.

Tatton ward at Knutsford and District Community Hospital has been temporarily closed since August 2010.

A 14-week consultation began in November, with meetings set up by East Cheshire NHS Trust inviting residents to share their feelings.

At a meeting at St John’s Church Hall on January 25, the room was full of people asking questions.

Residents now have two more occasions to quiz the trust’s officers.

The last event in Knutsford is on Monday, February 4, from 7pm to 8pm at Knutsford District Community Hospital, and a further session is on Wednesday, February 6, from 11am until 1pm at Wilmslow Leisure Centre.
