Save Harwich & Clacton On Sea's Maternity Units

On the 17th March with less than 2 hours notice Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust closed both Harwich and Clacton's maternity units as birthing units. This leaves the women of Tendring, who wish to have a hospital birth no local choice of where they give birth. They will have to go to Colchester general Hospital to use an already over stretched unit.

We want this decision reversed, and for the decision of where woman give birth given back to the women it directly affects.
