On Thursday evening (August 18) I was one of the first patients to be a casualty of the new A&E night-time closing hours at Grantham Hospital having suffered from AF, chest pains and rapid heart-beat (145- 175 beats per minute) in which my husband had to call for an ambulance.

I am particularly keen to add my name – David Jeffrey and my wife, Patricia M Jeffery – to the list of protesters on the said petition against the plans for Grantham’s A&E because as a family we have a high regard for the supreme medical care we have all experienced, and some still experiencing, so thank you.

Grantham A&E letter: Hospital cuts are ‘thin edge of the wedge’

We are going to need a bigger boat, not to mention a few more ambulances with a probable four-hour turn around delivering the heart attack, stroke and road traffic accident victims to the Lincoln or Boston A&E, but who is going to be left to look after the odd crazy paving accident casualty?

Grantham A&E closure letter: A deplorable decision

The decision taken by United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust to partially close Grantham Hospital A&E is a deplorable and retrograde measure which will result in the residents of Grantham and the surrounding villages being offered a second rate accident and emergency service compared to the rest of the county.

Since my heart attack and triple bypass operation, which I attributed to bad eating habits, poor levels of exercise, overweight, and smoking cigarettes, I try to avoid the smoke that spews out of people who are smoking, whether cigarettes or the liquid blow pipe type, by holding my breath to avoid their smoke.

Grantham Journal letter: Poor excuse for not showing film

I was just wondering why is it that the Reel is OK to show on release day the new Star Wars film, yet when it comes to Star Trek, which is a sponsor on the Grantham Reel website, they decide not to show it on release date and have heard they might not even show it there at all.
