Stand up and be counted or lose the hospital, this really is the point we have reached, its a bitter truth we have to swallow unless the community rises up against the trust and Magherafelt Council.
As everyone is now becoming aware, 7 more beds are to be removed from Mid Ulster Hospital. This is not a temporary closure this is the start of the rot that was agreed already to start and completely remove all inpatients from Mid Ulster Hospital.
These plans were agreed already by Magherafelt Council,http://savethemid.weebly.com/…/magherafelt-district-council… , and is part of a wider agreement by the Trust and the council to shut down Mid Ulster as a local hospital and turn it into a health center which will in part be hired out to private health firms.
Lets send a message at this meeting that we will not stand back anymore
