Hospital bus is vital

Thank you to Mrs Maiden (Gazette, August 15) for drawing attention to the fact that no mention has been made of a bus service to the North Devon District Hospital in the published information about revised bus services.

Like her, I am grateful to have the regular half-hourly bus via Bideford direct to the hospital.

I can remember it being set up some years ago after the need for it was established by a user group.

It is well used, and it would be difficult for many people if a hospital such as ours in Barnstaple, serving a wide area, were not well provided with a good, frequent bus service.

I do hope this will be included in the plans.
