Health secretary to visit Kirklees hospitals
November 14, 2017
Mr Hunt agreed to come to Kirklees in response to a question from Dewsbury MP Paula Sherriff in the House of Commons on Tuesday November 14.
Ms Sherriff said:"I have repeatedly asked the Secretary of State, and I ask him yet again, whether he will visit my area to see for himself the damaging impacts that the downgrades and closures of local hospital services in Dewsbury and Huddersfield will have on my constituents."
In response Mr Hunt said: "I am very happy to accept the hon lady's invitation to visit her area, which I will do, but what I know I will see when I go there is that 8,300 more people are being treated within four hours at her local hospital, where there are 42 more doctors and 56 more nurses than in 2010."
