I rise to present a petition concerning hospital cuts in my constituency.
The petition states:
The petition of residents of Bishop Auckland, Shildon and surrounding areas,
Declares that Bishop Auckland General Hospital should have a midwife led maternity unit, breast screening services and an urgent care centre.
The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the County Durham & Darlington Foundation Trust to guarantee a midwife-led maternity unit, breast screening services and an urgent care centre for the next 10 years.
And the petitioners remain, etc.
