PRESS RELEASE Green Leader backs call for HRI meeting with Health Minister

Kirklees Green Party Leader Councillor Andrew Cooper today welcomed calls for a meeting between all Party Leaders on the Council and the Health Minister Jeremy Hunt regarding the proposal to remove acute care and Accident and Emergency Services from Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.

"We need to present a united opposition to these proposals across the political groups to show that we are fully behind the local community and the vital need to maintain Accident and Emergency and other Acute care services at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary"

"National Government is the ultimate provider of funding for NHS services and decisions made at Government level have a huge influence in decisions made locally. This matter must be raised at the highest level with central government. It is simply not acceptable for the Government to say it is a matter for "local determination" as they have done in their response to the online petition."
