KEEP HALIFAX AND HUDDERSFIELD A&Es OPEN!
This campaign has ended.
We the undersigned demand that there is no downgrading to Calderdale or Huddersfield A and E Departments and instead call for a huge investment in services to provide safe and decent staffing levels.
Why is this important?
With increased distances to A&E, come increased rates of mortality. We don’t want people dying because either Halifax or Huddersfield A&E has been closed.
We need the A&Es in both Halifax and Huddersfield to stay open.
We’re the sixth richest country in the world, we can afford to keep them open.
More than 2000 people have already signed this Calderdale 38 Degrees NHS campaign petition at street stalls in Calderdale over the past two years.
The reason for putting it online now is because the Public Consultation on the proposed A&E closure and other hospital cuts is coming up in the new year 2016.
Unbelievably, Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group is claiming that there has been no public opposition to their proposed hospital cuts and that everyone wants the cuts and changes they're proposing.
So we need to remind them, loud and clear, that the people of Calderdale want to KEEP BOTH HALIFAX AND HUDDERSFIELD A&Es OPEN.
Please sign this Calderdale 38 Degrees NHS campaign petition - even if you're one of the 7,000+ Calderdale people who already signed the 2014 e-petition to the Coalition government, calling for Halifax A&E to stay open. That petition has now vanished into Parliament’s archive and has no currency, so please add your name to this one!
