The Evening Star is fighting to keep head and neck cancer surgery where it belongs - at Ipswich Hospital.

The Evening Star is fighting to keep head and neck cancer surgery where it belongs - at Ipswich Hospital.

So far more than 3,000 people have signed the Star's petition against the move.

During the campaign the Star has highlighted issues including:

- The public consultation into the move was a sham, with the East of England Strategic Health Authority telling health colleagues the only allowable option was to move the service to Norwich.

- The flaws in the data regarding the number of patients treated at Ipswich Hospital.

- The lack of specialist registrars in oral and maxillofacial surgery at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital.
