The proposal means that emergency healthcare in the region will be centralized.

Among other things, large parts of the emergency care that is currently provided at the hospital in Köping will be moved to Västerås.

Charlotte Söderberg works as an ST doctor at a health center in Kolsva.

She believes that many people will leave their jobs in healthcare in Köping if the proposal goes through.

Lars Almroth, director of health and medical care in Region Västmanland, hopes that will not happen.

- This is not a liquidation of the hospital but a development.

If we take advantage of the skills, I think there are many people who want to stay and be part of it, he says.
