Angry campaigners who have spent a decade defending a seaside town's hospital facilities have pledged to maintain its services.
Skegness Hospital Watch founder Geoff Poulter described the LSSR review proposals as "horrific and disgusting".
The 73-year-old retired Derbyshire miner, who lives in the seaside resort, pledged to continue the battle to keep Skegness A&E intact as the urgent trauma centre that his group had fought hard to keep.
"We raised £42,000 from collections to buy vital diagnostic equipment for Skegness so people don't have to travel to Boston," Mr Poulter said.
"Then we get told that there's a complete review of health and social care across Lincolnshire.
"All we're asking is for is for the National Insurance contributions paid by millions of people to be spent on health.
"But instead they're looking at ideas and proposals which are totally unacceptable.
"The simple facts are that every year this town attracts a total of 1.5 million visitors.
"So we need the facilities to treat all the people we welcome to Skegness and those who live in the area if they happen to be seriously ill or injured."
