SOS Darlington coffee morning

We would just like to thank everyone who turned out for our SOS Darlington coffee morning on Saturday 19th November.

The coffee morning, held at Redhall Community Centre, showed yet again the strength of Darlington’s community spirit as residents turned out to hear from SOS volunteers.

We would also like to thank Jenny Chapman MP, Ron Hogg Police, Crime and Vicitims’ Commissioner for County Durham & Darlington, and Councillor Ian Haszeldine for speaking.

It is hugely important that the people who are served by Darlington Memorial Hospital understand the implications potential downgrades to key services would have on our community. Under the Sustainability and Transformation Plan, the local NHS trust will begin a consultation next year regarding the future of health services. Under the current plan, Darlington Memorial Hospital may see A&E, maternity and other key services stripped back.

You can read here more about the how STP plans.

SOS Darlington will be organising further events for December and into the new year.

Thanks,

Team SOS.
