Fairfield Review

I had an interesting and informative meeting yesterday with the Acting Chairman and the Director of Strategic Planning about the future of services at Fairfield Hospital.
We spent most time on discusssing the future of Maternity Services. The decision taken to close the Maternity Department in December is to be reviewed by an Independent Review Panel who will send a report of their findings to the Secretary of State who will then have to decide whether or not to endorse their findings. One thing is clear there will not be a decision before this years local elections.
