Huge shout out to Kirklees Keep Our NHS Public launching this week. More at EnergyRoyd.
Helen Richardson-Foster, a Hebden Bridge resident who eagerly signed the petition, said she was extremely worried about the proposal to move Calderdale Royal Hospital A&E to Huddersfield:
“Living in the Upper Calder Valley, it’s quite a long way to Halifax as it is and you’re looking at a good hour to get to Huddersfield. My nephew was rushed to A&E in Halifax with a head injury last week and the fact that he could get to Calderdale Royal Hospital in a matter of minutes was vital. If he’d had to go to Huddersfield, he would have been brain damaged.”
