The future of St John’s Hospital is set to be the topic of discussion at a number of public meetings next month.

Members of the public are being encouraged to go along and have their say on the review into paediatric services at the hospital in Livingston.

There are two meetings planned in West Lothian at the Howden Park Centre in Livingston. The first on Monday, March 7 at 6.30pm and the second on Wednesday, March 9 at 2pm.

There are fears the review could lead to closure or downgrading of services at St John’s after staff shortages last summer affected opening hours at the children’s ward.

The views gathered at the meetings will be given to the team conducting the review before the deadline of March 18.
