Councillors Andrew Cooper and Karen Allison at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary
 Green Councillors on Kirklees Council are to call for an Extraordinary Council Meeting to focus on the crisis facing Hospital Services including the threatened Huddersfield Accident and Emergency Unit.

In Wednesday’s Council meeting Councillor Andrew Cooper, Leader of the Kirklees Green Party Group will propose an amendment to motion on NHS Services asking the Council to:

“call an Extraordinary Meeting of the Council regarding NHS Services in Kirklees as the only item on the agenda at the earliest opportunity.”

The amendment goes on to call on all political groups on Kirklees Council to,

“work together to establish a joint resolution on NHS Services in Kirklees to be presented to the  Extraordinary Meeting”

Councillor Andrew Cooper said,

“This is too important an issue to be used for political point scoring on which Government is to blame for getting us into this mess. We need to focus on solutions and a way forward to resolve this crisis. That is why I have asked all parties to come together to produce a joint resolution for decision at an Extraordinary Council Meeting. I would be keen for us to invite appropriate NHS officials and Management to address the meeting and answer questions from elected members. There should also be an opportunity for contributions from local people at the beginning of the meeting.”
