Bring back A+E to Queen Margaret hospital

Petition to return accident and emergency services to Queen Margaret hospital in Dunfermline Five.

Lives could be at risk due to the extra miles that patients across West Fife have to travel for A&E treatment at the Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy.
The petition, which has been supported by communities across the whole of West Fife, has been backed by Dunfermline MSP Cara Hilton

All emergency services were moved from Dunfermline to Kirkcaldy in 2012 under ‘Right for Fife’ proposals developed in 2001/2002 to modernise health provision across the Kingdom.

We would like these services returned to Dunfermline.
