A WGC pensioner has started a petition to bring back a full A&E to the New QEII Hospital.
Derek Groom, 70, of Walnut Grove, started the petition for East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust to reinstate the A&E after patients at Lister A&E were redirected to the New QEII’s urgent care centre earlier this week.
The QEII’s A&E was replaced in October 2014 by the urgent care centre.
Mr Groom said: “I am disgusted by the way the health authority managers decided to knock the QEII down.”
