Welcome to Say YES to Newark Hospital
Welcome to Say YES to Newark Hospital, formerly the Save Newark Hospital Campaign. We are entirely non-political, and take pride in having members from across the political spectrum, and also members with no political affiliation at all. We work for the Hospital, and for the benefit of Newark Hospital with no extra political motive whatsoever.
We have rebranded our campaign to provide an opportunity for local people to demonstrate their support. We want to attract as many members as possible and it is our intention to produce wristbands and badges in campaign colours for you to purchase as a sign of your commitment to your local hospital.
The new website will include regularly updated articles and latest news, enabling members to stay in touch with the campaign. The renewed plans also come with a new logo, and campaign colours, both of which appear on the website.
The chairman of the campaign Francis Towndrow said about the re-launch – “Grantham Hospital has 200 beds and Worksop has 300 Newark has less than 100, this in grossly unfair. We need as many people as possible to the support the development of Newark Hospital by becoming members of the Say YES to Newark Hospital campaign. “
The official re-launch date is Valentine’s Day – the 14th February 2012.
In conjunction with the re-launch, we conducted a survey of nearly 450 people in the Newark, Southwell, Ollerton and Bingham. The survey asked service users to indicate how important a good level of emergency care and assessment, admissions 24/7, improved ambulance provision, re-opened wards, the same level of services as other similar towns and improved public and patient transport is to them.
From the survey it is clear that local people were most concerned about the level of emergency care and assessment, admissions 24/7, the inequality of service provision and the closure of wards which all scored over 92%. The area which people are slightly less concerned is improved ambulance provision and improved public and patient transport, which both scored 88.5%.
Thank you for your support.
