Protestors have gathered outside a meeting that was called to address concerns about Galloway Community Hospital.

The meeting took place at Stranraer Library, and was organised after local people raised concerns about a number of issues, including one of the hospital's two in-patient wards being closed for a week, earlier this month.

There has also been criticism of the lack of anaesthetic cover in the emergency department of the hospital.
