Horton campaigners win right to appeal

Campaigners have won their latest battle over the Horton's furture.

This is all to do with the fact that the consultation done before the maternity unit in banbury was downgraded was split into two parts.

A judge ruled that process was legal, but Keep the Horton General have been told they can appeal that ruling.

‘We have faced considerable criticism for the past ten months for ‘holding up’ any progress being made at the Horton’ said KTHG Chairman, Keith Strangwood. ‘We have steadfastly believed in our cause and that is that we had to fight on for the sake of the many people who have suffered terribly due to the removal of beds and services that were previously available at HGH. This decision vindicates us. A Judge in one of the highest courts in the land agrees with us’.

‘Our campaign group receives, on a continual basis, messages from members of the public who have endured considerable hardship, inconvenience and suffering. We cannot stand idly by and observe this suffering from the sidelines. We will be with them until, and after, this situation is resolved’.

‘Our fundraising team continue to do brilliant work which adds much needed cash to our fighting fund every month. This news will give them a huge boost. Well done team KTHG, I am proud of you all’
