Our Vigil marking one year since Carotid Endarterectomies left Wycombe Hospital

On Wednesday 27th September, we gathered outside Wycombe Hospital to mark one year since these vascular operations left. A successful staff rotation was ignored and now some of our most vulnerable patients  have to travel all the way to Oxford. These operations left without the expected public consultation and we are writing a letter of complaint to NHS England as well as urging our Scrutiny Committee (HASC) to refer the matter to the Health Secretary.

Thank you to everyone who helped!

The vigil lasted an hour. We collected signatures, wrote messages for staff and filled in questionnaires. Some great conversations were had and we are in a better position than last week!

The story has made it into local media including the Bucks Free Press, Wycombe Today, BBC 3 Counties Radio and Mix 96 so far. Articles will be added to our Media Mentions page.

Grassroots station Moving On TV also captured some voices at the end of our vigil: https://youtu.be/x5cd_RnN6oQ 

Thank you to everyone for helping to raise awareness.

More help will be needed to spread the word about future events. Please check our social media pages regularly and share/speak to those around you etc.

Many thanks
