Weʼre raising £5,000 to restore a 24/7 service to Cheltenham A&E and stop general surgery moving to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.
- Cheltenham, Gloucestershire
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We desperately need to preserve the key services to CGH; A&E (as a 24/7 dept.) and general surgery, which will keep it functioning as a fully-fledged General Hospital. Losing this status, as an ‘acute hospital’ that receives emergency patients, will mean that EVERY resident in Gloucestershire will have to travel to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital (GRH) for emergency care. GRH often has no available beds, which will lead to much longer waiting times in A&E, more patients lying on trolleys in corridors and people being transferred out of county.
Therefore, this will affect not just those living in Cheltenham and North of Gloucestershire, but everyone in Gloucestershire as a whole!

Waiting times, targets - the news omits to mention the number of A&E departments downgraded or planned for closure. Same number of patients, fewer facilities = longer waits. Keep our A&E open!

About the fundraiser
The Restore Emergency At Cheltenham Hospital campaign launched in 2013 to restore a fully functioning A&E Dept operating 24/7 at Cheltenham General Hospital (CGH). Further threats to services at CGH prompted REACH to widened its role to “Keeping Cheltenham a General Hospital”.
