Our community is reeling from the changes being made at the Horton General Hospital.
Just last week consultant led maternity care ceased and was replaced with a midwife led unit and now Oak Ward (elderly care) has also closed.
With the ever increasing population in Banbury we have never needed our General Hospital as much as we do now. If you haven’t received care from the Horton yourself you probably have a friend or relative who has.
It is incredibly concerning that our children’s ward, critical care and A&E could be next in the firing line.
On a personal note the Horton has provided emergency care to our two young daughters on more than one occasion. Both our girls have rare growth conditions resulting in needing emergency treatment and being admitted to the Horton’s Children’s Ward more times than we have liked! Mark’s parents have also received much needed emergency treatment in A&E, the Critical Care Unit and as inpatients.
We can’t begin to imagine our community without this necessary service. Our community NEEDS a fully functioning General Hospital!
So for the month of October, for all door orders received, Elite Garage Doors will donate our waste disposal fee to the Save the Horton fund as our way of supporting the #HandsOffOurHorton campaign.
