Closure of hospital ward under scrutiny

The recent decision by University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW) to close Birch Ward at Rugby St Cross Hospital will come under the spotlight this week.

Councillors from both Warwickshire County Council and Rugby Borough Council will be meeting on Friday 16 December to consider how this decision has been reached.

Members of the public are welcome to attend. If you’d like to put forward a question to Andy Hardy, the Chief Executive of UHCW, please send these to by the end of the day on Wednesday 14 December.

This will be a special joint scrutiny meeting of Warwickshire’s Adult Social Care and Health Overview & Scrutiny Committee and Rugby’s Customer & Partnerships Committee – for more information on these committees, please click on the links.
