Buxton hospital ward set to close

HEALTH bosses have this week approved plans to close the Johnson Ward at Buxton Hospital.

Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Trust have given the go ahead for Johnson Ward and the Burlington Ward at Buxton’s Cavendish Hospital to merge on the Cavendish Hospital site.

This means the Johnson Ward will close and all patients will relocate to the Cavendish Hospital.

Full details will be in next week’s Buxton Advertiser but we want to know your thoughts on this decision by the health trust.
