– Lyn Hill-Tout, chief executive Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust
Our staff continue to provide care for our patients at both Stafford and Cannock Chase hospitals, and are very proud to continue to put patients first.
We would like to reassure local people and GPs that we are continuing to provide all our usual services at both hospitals and patients should turn up as usual for any appointments they have.
We would like to thank our local community for their continued support, which means a great deal to staff.
Thousands of campaigners battling to keep major services at the scandal-hit Stafford Hospital will take to the local streets to protest against a withdrawal of services, including maternity care.
