Stop Mid-Yorks NHS cuts

Paul Wheelhouse

Mid-Yorkshire NHS Trust is looking to cut back Dewsbury Hospital services. Little notice or information has been given for the consultation meetings, which have already started and will be over by 20 March.

But if the trust really wants to know what people think, they should pay attention to the 25,000 signatures already collected in opposition to the cuts.

Save Our Local Hospital Services (SOLHS) believes the trust want to implement 'Option Two' in their proposals, which will reduce Dewsbury Hospital to a cottage hospital.

As if to reinforce their plans, the trust has already started transferring local services to Pinderfields and Pontefract, forcing patients to travel further.

The trust has already attacked workers at the hospital, with admin and clerical workers having taken strike action against pay cuts this year (see reports at www.socialistparty.org.uk).

SOLHS was formed in August 2012 to bring the community together to oppose the proposed cuts across Mid Yorkshire Trust.

The group, with the support of the Huddersfield Socialist Party, has worked tirelessly to do this, holding many public meetings around the local area, spreading the word of opposition to the cuts and giving an opportunity to everyone to get involved to stop the cuts to their services.

We have spoken to many local people. The vast majority do not want to lose any of their vital services from Dewsbury Hospital.
