Don't Downgrade Maidstone Hospital
From left to right on the front row: me, a woman from Marden who has collected over 4000 signatures, Helen Grant (Con), Peter Carroll (Lib Dem) and Rav Seethrum (Lab).
While I am a fan of midwife led maternity services, keeping the doctors out of maternity care unless they are needed is best, there is absolutely no case for not having a consultant obstetrician team based at Maidstone Hospital.
Maidstone and its bordering towns make up the second largest population area in Kent. Not having full services here is simply wrong.
