THE future of health services in Royston will be discussed at a meeting today (Friday).
Royston’s county councillor Fiona Hill has called the meeting following the news last month that the NHS was having a “pause for reflection” on plans to close Royston Hospital and transfer health clinics to Royston Health Centre.
Cllr Hill will be joined at the meeting by Royston MP Oliver Heald and Cllr Tony Hunter, county councillor for North Herts Rural.
“We need to have a meeting so we can find out exactly what their plans are,” said Cllr Hill.
“At the moment it’s unclear what this ‘pause for reflection’ means for the hospital and the health centre.

“Previously we have been given an assurance that Royston would retain all its clinics whatever happened, and we want to try and get more services for the town if possible.”
The Royston Hospital Action Group has been fighting the potential closure of the hospital, and last month got the land listed as an asset of community interest.
