Greg has expressed his deep concerns at reported plans to close the Minor Injuries Unit at Driffield Hospital.

The East Riding Clinical Commissioning Group is considering a new Urgent Care Strategy and is assessing how to commission urgent and emergency care in East Yorkshire.

One option under consideration by them is to close Minor Injury Units in Driffield and elsewhere on the supposed grounds that they do not represent the best use of resources.

Greg says: “I have no doubt that the service provided by the Alfred Bean Hospital in Driffield is both valued and necessary and I will be writing to the Commissioning Group expressing my opposition to this misguided suggestion.”
