Protests have been held over the plans
Nearly three-quarters of people want round-the-clock emergency care kept at a Nottinghamshire hospital, a survey has found.
A consultation on plans to close the A&E Department at Newark Hospital and replace it with a minor injuries unit received more than 700 replies.
The idea has provoked protests, but NHS officials said it would improve care.
NHS Nottinghamshire County's Board will meet on 17 June to decide on the department's future.
Opposition to the plans has included a 5,000-name petition and human chain around the hospital.
Campaigners said the move would mean patients will have to travel further for treatment - while the NHS said centralising specialist care would improve quality.
The consultation ran from November to early March.
Of the 723 survey replies, 72% supported the option for a minor injuries unit "plus" - which would be open around the clock.
A spokesman for NHS Nottinghamshire County said: "We're really pleased that so many people took the opportunity to tell us their views on the proposals and have a say on the future of Newark's NHS.
"These views will be considered by the board when important decisions are made about what local healthcare services should look like."
