200 beds at risk – say no to Mid Yorks NHS carve up !

If you have relatives and friends who use hospital services in Wakefield areas…

More details in Dead Weight researched by the excellent John Lister, some points

  • £38,000,000 implementation for services reorganisation but Trust will not be in financial balance even before 2017
  • Dewsbury A&E reduced to urgent care, Dewsbury hospital to deliver elective, rehabilitation only
  • £310,000,000 PFI scheme funded hospitals in Pinderfields and Pontefract so no beds closed because cost of PFI does not go down even when services are reduced
  • no details in the documentation about plans to establish new services
  • no details in the documentation about plans for patient flows
  • no details in the documentation about plans for alternative community services
  • no fixed timescale for Ernst & Young to complete their work
  • £4,000,000 spent on management consultants in the last year
