Ok this may not effect most of you but I would greatly appreciate it if you could take a minute to sign the petition in the link.
The reason for the petition is that the Scottish Exec wants to close the nuero surgery unit at Aberdeen royal infirmary and centralise it down to Glasgow, this is a 150 mile journey from Aberdeen and further for people further north (Orknay & Shetland etc). Most people that require this specialist surgery probably won't make the journey from north Scotland to the south.
My sister in law suffered a heamorage a few years ago and if it wasn't for the treatment that she received in Aberdeen she would not be here today. As you can understand this is a extremly vital unit for us to have in Aberdeen.
