Save Cheltenham A&E

Gloucestershire's NHS bosses have let slip that they are looking to close Cheltenham's Accident and Emergency, downgrading the department to a GP led Urgent Treatment Centre. 

Urgent Treatment Centres are designed to cater for non-life-threatening situations, such as sprains, suspected broken limbs, cuts and grazes etc.  This would mean anyone requiring emergency medical treatment would have to travel to Gloucester.

We utterly oppose this move and will fight to keep the A&E facilities Cheltenham, closer to the Cotswolds and Tewkesbury!  Please sign our petition below to add your voice to ours in this fight:

  • We the undersigned wholeheartedly oppose the closure of Cheltenham's Accident and Emergency Department.  
  • We the undersigned reject the view that an Urgent Treatment Centre is sufficient for a town of nearly 120,000 people, as well as those travelling from the Cotswolds and Tewkesbury.
  • We call on Gloucestershire's NHS Hospitals Foundation Trust to abandon this short-sighted policy and to guarantee the future of Cheltenham's Accident and Emergency Department.
