At the 20th January Greater Huddersfield and Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Groups meeting, the governing bodies’ unanimous decision to go ahead with a public consultation on plans to cut hospital and close hospital services was immediately denounced by a member of the public, who said:
“This is like North Korea”.
Amid general outcry, someone called out, to a round of applause.
“Shame on all of you”,
While another calmly said,
“You’re a cabal preparing for privatisation. That new hospital will be wrapped up in a pink ribbon and sold off.”
