Parliamentary hopefuls will be quizzed on the future of health care services in Crawley.

A meeting is being organised by Crawley Hospital Campaign, which is fighting for a new hospital for the town and for all services to be retained at Crawley Hospital until the replacement is built.

The meeting is in the Friary Hall, near the town centre bus station, on Tuesday May 29 at 7.45pm.

Speakers who have so far agreed to take part are Laura Moffatt (Labour), Muriel Hirsch (Socialist Alliance), Henry Smith (Conservative) and Linda Seekings (Liberal Democrat).

Campaign spokesman Simon Burgess said: "As part of the continuing campaign to defend local hospital services we have arranged for the candidates to speak and answer questions on the future for health care in Crawley.

"This is an opportunity to quiz the candidates on their attitude to planned cuts and closures at Crawley Hospital and to make the views of local people known."
