  1. Hi
    Have you tried starting up an e-petition, for example on the (free) http://www.change.org website, which is designed for this purpose?
    They seem pretty well organised — I signed a petition on it 6 months ago to save Gloucestershire’s libraries, and they’re still emailing me with updates about it.

    There are other e-petition websites around too, though they may not all be free — see:


    John Stephenson

    • Dear John Stevenson,
      Two petitions about the downgrade have been collected in the past, see: http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/45279 (signed by 7,527 people) and: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CheltenhamAandEpetition (organised by the local Liberal Democrat party, signed by nearly 3,000 people).
      The REACH campaign hopes to as soon as possible launch a new interactive way for people to register their support for our aim “To have a fully functioning, fully staffed A&E Department operating 24/7 re-instated at Cheltenham General Hospital, which serves a population of at least 200,000 in Cheltenham, Tewkesbury Borough and the North Cotswolds, at the earliest possible opportunity.”
      In the meantime, we encourage you to write individual letters to you local MP and the local Clinical Commissioning Group, expressing your concerns, see our “What can you do to help?” webpage,
      Thanks for your interest

    • Hi Otis,
      Thanks – it’s all about having someone to take on managing these things really. If you, or someone you know, might be interesting in managing a facebook site for the campaign perhaps you could get in touch with Julia? In the meantime if you can publicise this website via facebook that would be great!
