Latest NewsLocal MPs ‘Dismayed’ at Hospital Decision
East Yorkshire MP Sir Greg Knight and Beverley and Holderness MP Graham Stuart have expressed ‘concern and dismay’ at the decision by the Independent Reconfiguration Panel to rubber stamp East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group (ERYCCG) plans to close the Minor Injuries Units at the Alfred Bean Hospital in Driffield and Hornsea Cottage Hospital and service cutbacks s at Withernsea Hospital.
Sir Greg and Graham paid tribute to local residents who had campaigned tirelessly against the closures. Thousands of people signed petitions, hundreds of people attended public rallies, local GPs expressed opposition as did East Riding of Yorkshire Council and town and parish councils.
Graham and Sir Greg are now seeking an urgent meeting with Jane Hawkard, Chief Officer of the CCG. They will demand, on behalf of their constituents, that the CCG reflects again on the public consultation it carried out and remind her it is not too late to reverse these ill-founded policy decisions.
