Hospital campaigners meet bosses
Protest in Bridgnorth
People protested against the plans in Bridgnorth in January
Campaigners fighting to save services at a community hospital in Shropshire will meet health officials at a public meeting this week.

Residents are angry at plans to close a mental health ward at Ludlow Hospital to try and save 3m. The NHS in the county collectively has a 55m deficit.

A proposal to shut Whitchurch and Bridgnorth community hospitals was dropped earlier this year.

The meeting will be held Harley Centre in Ludlow on Tuesday at 1900 BST.

Shrewsbury & Telford Hospitals NHS Trust is still looking at configuring services between the Royal Shrewsbury & Princess Royal Hospitals and changes may affect several services including emergency, paediatric and maternity.
