More cash needed for hospitals

See the young and old are cared for. Over the past year my life has been back and forth between Preston and Burnley hospitals, with superb results until recently.

In the last two to three months my visits for check-ups keep being cancelled, with some being almost last minute.

A good friend of mine, who has been waiting for a back operation, was in quite a lot of pain and had to stop work for several months. He had his cancelled the day before his operation. It was like a punch in the face. It seemed the equipment had broken down and there was no back-up service.

I wonder if this would be a service on which our councillors or big wigs would, by all means, give their views, or if they would put more money into our needy hospitals to make it a more helpful service.
