Lennox Herald - - LENNOX VIEW -

The story in last week’s Len­nox about women at a Vale med­i­cal prac­tice wait­ing up to eight weeks for emer­gency breast can­cer re­fer­rals shocked and un­set­tled me.

What is hap­pen­ing to our lo­cal health care sys­tem?

The way peo­ple in this part of the coun­try are be­ing treated (or not, as the case may be) when it comes to health­care is ap­palling.

We have lost ser­vices, been forced to travel miles, left stuck in am­bu­lances on traf­fic-logged roads and, if your con­di­tion doesn’t fit, de­nied the right to med­i­cal care in your home, sur­rounded by your friends and fam­ily.

We should all be an­gered by this and we should all use this to fuel the fight to save the Vale. Name and ad­dress sup­plied
