Our unpredictable maritime area needs maximum rescue coverage

Don’t let negative news taint your view of hospital – it is excellent

SIR – It is right to highlight the unacceptable situation regarding potential ward closures, job cuts and indecision relating to a replacement hospital. However along with all this dreadful uncertainty, a serious problem has developed in that staff morale is suffering badly and public confidence in the service has been damaged.
