Tatton Ward to be discussed at board meeting
THE results of a series of consultation events regarding the future of Tatton Ward will be discussed at a board meeting in March.
East Cheshire NHS Trust is holding a consultation into the permanent closure of the ward at the Knutsford Community Hospital, which runs until Sunday, February 24.
The results of the process, plus the meetings held in Knutsford and further afield, will be heard at the trust board’s next meeting that takes place in the town at St John’s Church Hall on Thursday, March 28.
A health campaign group, led by Charlotte Peters-Rock, told the Guardian she had attended all of the six consultation meetings and had counted 106 people in attendance.
But a spokesperson for East Cheshire NHS Trust said bosses were surprised at the amount of people contacting them online.
“We had quite a bit of comment, both online and face to face at the consultation meetings,” he said.
“This will be presented at the next board meeting of the trust and the board members will look at those comments. A lot of the data is anecdotal with individual responses and personal comments, while with the raw data it is about identifying the points that have been made.”
