Hands Off HRI - Massive Call to Action on Saturday, 2nd December, 2017
On Saturday, 2nd December, the Calderdale Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust (CHFT) intends to move Huddersfield Royal Infirmary’s 27-bed Respiratory & Cardiology Ward to Calderdale Royal Hospital.
If CHFT succeeds in moving the ward from Huddersfield to Halifax, the Trust will be in a strong position to argue that, in the absence of a Respiratory & Cardiology Ward, our hospital can no longer viably run an Emergency Service Unit (the critical part of A&E).
CHFT is trying to shut down our A&E by Stealth.
Greater Huddersfield has a population of 250,000. If we do not turn out in the greatest numbers possible to send a signal to Health Chiefs that HRI is our hospital and we will not give up our A&E, then we will lose our A&E. This is not a joke. This is not a game. We are all standing on the cliff-edge. This is very real.
- If you’ve ever wanted to be involved in anything to help save our hospital, December 2nd is the one event to come to.
- If you’ve ever wanted to do one thing to help save our hospital and then never do anything else again, December 2nd is the one event to come to.
- If you believe in your community and value your hospital, December 2nd is the one event to come to.
Be there. With all your friends. With all your family:

This is our chance. We must all stand up and be counted.
