Readers reacted to last week’s news on Facebook:
Emma Wilcock: My youngest daughter was born early and if it weren’t for the fast thinking of the staff at Pilgrim Hospital then she would’ve died!! I REALLY hope the powers that be don’t close our A&E or Maternity Units as this would be dangerous.
Gemma Hadley: Both my labours were quick and both poorly babies. No way would I have made it to Lincoln.Shame on them!
Dawn Harman: I just hope no one has a dire emergency such as a baby delivered early as it’s a long way to Lincoln!
