‘I want to bring a petition to the government and the Department of Health so they can see what is happening.
‘It would be good to get support from MPs and councillors in setting up a petition because I do think it needs some weight behind it.’
‘Ideally, I would like to petition to see The Royal Hospital Haslar, in Gosport, reopened with an emergency department but I think the chance of that happening is slim.
‘It is crucial that we have an A&E department in most areas.
‘Gosport is a long way from QA and a hospital in the Fareham and Gosport area would probably help a lot.
‘I cannot see Haslar opening but if it could, that would be the first step to easing pressure at QA.
‘It never should have been closed in the first place.’
