Ben Bradshaw MP was interviewed on BBC news - 20/08/14 - He said that Community Hospital beds are needed to reduce the blocking of more expensive acute beds
Last year the beds at Torrington Community Hospital were closed. No consultation was carried out with the people of Torrington and the surronding parishes. This was illegal. STITCH was formed to fight the closures and save the Hospital.
99% of Torrington Residents voted to keep the beds open
Residents of Torrington and surrounding parishes marched to show support for the STITCH campaign, including MP Geoffrey Cox
