I am sorry I have not been around. My husband has just spent some time in hospital. He is home now but still very ill, so have been nursing him.

I have just received this and thought it might be of interest to this group.

I have no idea who Dave actually is except he runs this web site: and seems to want to remain anonymous. I am guessing he is probably an ex resident of the Henderson. Nor do I know if he placed the advert or if not, who did?

I just thought others may be interested

I understand that a full-page advert relating to the closure of Henderson will be appearing in the Bury Times newspaper on Thursday the seventh of February. I thought it might be of some interest to you.
I have been sent a copy of the advertisement, see below.

Proposed closure of Henderson Hospital.

A direct appeal to labour MP Ivan Lewis, who is the Member of Parliament for Bury South and the Parliamentary Under-Secretary for the Department of Health.

MP Ivan Lewis has substantial responsibility in this hospital closure.

People and government should be judged by their actions not by their words.

Many years ago Margaret Thatcher’s government tried to close down this hospital. Eventually the Conservative government of the time came to realise the long-term financial benefit in keeping it open.

It would be ironic if such a useful establishment was able to survive under a Conservative government yet became victim to financial cuts by the Gordon Brown’s labour government.

Closing Henderson Hospital would have a short-term financial benefit to the government, but could hardly be considered financially competent in the long-term.

We realise that the hospital's site could be sold off, possibly for luxury housing, but a Labour government is there to serve the vulnerable as well as the rich.

We appeal to you, Ivan Lewis to exercise the financial expertise you gained in the Treasury and keep Henderson Hospital open
