Dehenna Davison MP is fighting for Bishop Auckland’s A&E, which was closed under Labour in 2009.
Communities across Bishop, Teesdale and the Wear Valley were told their services wouldn’t suffer when the A&E at Bishop Auckland Hospital was closed, but this hasn’t been true. Wait times at Durham and Darlington are too long and getting worse, and the added journey time for ambulances puts families and vulnerable people in danger.
“Since 2019 I have fought, publicly and in private, for the return of the hospital services we had taken away from us under the last Labour government. But I can’t do it alone. By signing up to support my campaign you will join residents from across our area in fighting to bring back Bishop’s A&E, keeping our loved ones safe and bringing more jobs and footfall to the local economy. Sign up today."
This petition will be presented to the Integrated Care Board at a public meeting on the evening of the 15th September.
