The Mid Yorkshire Hospital Trust are proposing the following changes to Dewsbury & District Hospital:
- Closure of the Accident & Emergency department
- Severe cuts to the Maternity Unit
- ALL other departments within our hospital reduced to provide only non-urgent medical care, i.e. planned procedures.
Local people would have to travel as far as Wakefield or Pontefract to access vital health services for ALL urgent medical needs and many non-urgent procedures.
