Liberal Democrats are demanding better after NHS bosses revealed proposals for another downgrade of Cheltenham General Hospital.
The bad news comes as the Tory government continues to underfund the NHS.
The latest proposals will see more emergency surgery cases treated at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, removing services from Cheltenham.
Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate Max Wilkinson has written to NHS Trust bosses calling on them to justify the downgrade, which goes against the wishes of the vast majority of people in Cheltenham.
The Liberal Democrat policy of a 1p income tax increase to fund £6billion investment in the NHS would release pressure on NHS trusts to make cuts, meaning local people would get a better service.
