I would like to present a petition, signed by 4,670 people, residents of the United Kingdom and Glossopdale, to the House of Commons to save our Shire Hill Hospital. It declares opposition to the closure of the Shire Hill Hospital in Glossop as the only credible option in the consultation given. I pay tribute to the staff of Shire Hill and the people of Glossop, who have spent weeks and months campaigning and getting these signatures.
Following is the full text of the petition:
[The Petition of residents of the United Kingdom,
Declares opposition to the closure of the Shire Hill Hospital in Glossop as it is the only credible option.
The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to rule the consultation invalid an enable Shire Hill Hospital to continue their excellent rehabilitation service.
And the petitioners remain, etc.]
