Motion text

That this House believes that the rurality of areas should be taken into account when decisions are taken on the closure of hospitals; considers that small rural hospitals are just as important to the communities they serve as large city hospitals; and calls on the Government to consider seriously the impact of the closure of small hospitals in the same way that it does large hospitals.
