COUN Mick Corser, the people who have been signing the petition to keep the maternity unit at Solihull are not worried what political party, church or religion they support. All they want is a first class maternity unit at Solihull.
They are also not knocking Heartlands Hospital, we all know they do a grand job.
On July 2 a young lady went into labour and called for an ambulance. The ambulance was sent but was diverted to a more serious incident. As luck would have it, her grandmother was at hand. So I suppose this will go down with an apology.
What would they say if they had? An unfortunate young mum at Solihull Hospital that had to have a paediatrician right away. The ambulance has been sent out on a call. It finally comes back, traffic is at peak time, with snow and ice on the roads. And they have to go to Heartlands or Good Hope. I hate to think how long it would take and if the worst possible thing was to happen to the young mum would they say sorry, this will not happen again?
