There are talks about potentially closing the accident and emergency unit at the Queen Elizabeth Queen Mother hospital in Margate, Kent.

This will mean the 140,000 residents of Thanet will have to travel to Canterbury to use the nearest facilities. Our hospital has slowly been stripped back and soon we won't have a hospital at all.

The hospitals in surrounding areas are all ready under enough strain without having having to accommodate for the whole of Thanet as well.

Please fight for our A&E by signing today.

We, the undersigned, demand you let us keep our Accident & Emergency unit at QEQM hospital.
