A CRUNCH meeting on the future of Royston Hospital takes place next week.

Friends of Royston Hospital, MP Oliver Heald, and other stakeholders will meet with the North and East Herts Primary Care Trust on Monday to discuss its plans for the site.

As revealed exclusively in The Crow last month, the PCT blocked plans for a �250,000 day room development at the hospital because it would be "in use for very little time". This led to fears that the facility may be closed.

Jenny Routledge, from the Friends, said: "Hopefully things will be a lot clearer after this meeting but we'll have to wait and see.

"It would be good to get some answers because we just want to spend the money which has been generously given to us by the people of Royston.

"We've done all the cosmetic work needed up there and we want to go ahead with a more substantial project."

Royston's county councillor, Fiona Hill, who will be at Monday's meeting, said: "The hospital is a vital facility for Royston and I hope it will continue to be so for years to come.
