Keep All Services at Dewsbury District Hospital

No one in Dewsbury, Batley, Heckmondwike, Cleckheaton and the surrounding villages, wants to trail to Wakefield’s Pinderfields Hospital. Everyone wants a well staffed, well managed, well equipped hospital locally. Yet the Keoh report suggests that by 2020, the number of hospitals with  Accident and Emergency facilities, renamed as Emergency Centres in England, will be reduced from 144 in 2010, to between 44 to 70! Next A&E targeted in the region is Huddersfield Royal infirmary.
