Thank you for the Save Our Services campaign, I have just been online to sign up to the petition.

The issue relating to the Lister & QEII is a particularly emotive one for my family and I, as the Lister A&E team saved my husband's life in December 2004.

My husband is asthmatic and had been suffering from a bad cold, when he had a bronchial spasm. The ambulance arrived within five minutes, and got him to the Lister just as fast, but as he arrived he had a cardiac arrest. The team in A&E reacted quickly and professionally and were able to resuscitate him and get his lungs working again. If the ambulance or treatment had been at the QEII instead, I do not believe my husband would have survived.

Good luck with the campaign, keep up the good work, and can I implore more of your readers to sign the petition in favour of the Lister
