Minor injuries unit petition handed in
A petition signed by almost 4,000 people calling to protect the future of Congleton War Memorial Hospital’s minor injuries unit (MIU) has been handed in to Cheshire East Council.
The petition was launched after latest figures showed that the MIU was only open sporadically, as nursing staff are often deployed to the under-pressure A&E unit at Macclesfield District General Hospital.
Congleton’s minor injuries unit was closed more than it was open during last year’s harsh winter.
