CK 999 asks Independent Reconfiguration Panel to stop #Calderdale & #Huddersfield NHS cuts

Calderdale and Kirklees 999 Call for the NHS has sent the Independent Reconfiguration Panel a letter and report on Calderdale & Huddersfield hospitals Trust’s Full Business Case, asking them to carry out a full investigation of the proposed Calderdale and Greater Huddersfield NHS reconfiguration, that the Calderdale and Kirklees Joint Health Scrutiny Committee has referred to them for review.

We have asked the Independent Reconfiguration Panel to investigate the proposals fully, come to Calderdale and Greater Huddersfield to see for themselves and meet NHS staff and the public, and tell the Secretary of State to stop the proposed reconfiguration and to review the government’s NHS policies and programmes that are its root cause.

We have also sent the letter and report to Calderdale and Kirklees Joint Health Scrutiny Committee Chairs and the Calderdale and Kirklees Scrutiny Officers, for their information.
