The last post on this Blog carried bad news about one of our local GP practices. In the last couple of weeks we have had good news about North Manchester General Hospital which is to retain a full range of maternity services and in the next couple of years will gain a range of children's services, including a children's accident and emergency service .
This is very good news for the health of people across North Manchester but we need more still . Much of the building at NMGH is well past its sell-buy date and desperately need replacing with modern, state-of-the-art facilities. Crumpsall councillor Richard Leese, pictured here outside A&E at NMGH has recently met the new Chief Executive who agrees that new hospital buildings at Crumpsall must be a priority.
