THE number of signatures for our St Richard’s Hospital petition topped the 4,000 mark this week as forms continue to flood in to the Observer office.

Our A&E SOS campaign is seeking an assurance that local hospital services - including the accident & emergency unit - at Chichester won’t be adversely affected by Coastal West Sussex CCG’s handing of a £235 musculoskeletal contract to Bupa CSH Ltd.

We want to say a massive thank you to our readers for helping take up this crucial cause and ask for your continued support.

You can sign our online petition right now here:

There is also a form in this week’s paper which you can fill in with ten names to add your support.

And pick up Thursday’s paper for a full round up of the HASC meeting where members grilled members of the CCG over the contentious decision.
