Campaign guide - Hospital Closure Clause

Stop the Hospital Closure Clause - UPDATE - the Clause has finished the Committee Stage (where serious concerns were raised) and will return for the Report stage and the key, final vote, in March. One of OurNHS's key NHS campaigns

OurNHS was the first media outlet to highlight the issue nationally, of the government's attempt to fast-track future hospital closures with minimal consultation.

The clause - tagged on to the Care Bill - has just finished committee stage and in March will go to report stage and 3rd reading in the Commons in March (it has already been through the Lords, so this is the final, key vote).
