A group of campaigners made a five-hour round trip to Chesterfield’s Walton Hospital to highlight the impact of the decision to close the Spencer Ward at Buxton’s Cavendish Hospital.

The controversial move to close the elderly mental health ward at Buxton’s Cavendish Hospital will happen next month as part of a cost-cutting exercise by North Derbyshire and Hardwick clinical commissioning groups (CCG).
