Evidence that A&E cuts cost lives

Lee Scott's claim in February 2010 that to close King George A&E will mean that "people will die" appears to be gaining supportive evidence.

The Mail on Sunday claims a 37% increase in death rates since Newark A&E was closed. The story is here
I have written to Averil Dongworth, the local NHS  Chief Executive to ask if she will examine what has happened at Newark and report if it means King George A&E should be kept open to prevent a similar spike in the death rate.

I will publish Averil's response on this site.
