Halifax A&E Consultation
Health professionals have recently completed a review of local services. These are the five options they have put forward for public discussion before the health professionals make a decision:
1. No change
2. A ‘major’ A&E at Huddersfield, minor injury/urgent care centres at both Halifax and Todmorden and Planned Care at Calderdale Royal
3. A ‘major’ A&E at Halifax, minor injury/urgent care centres at both Huddersfield and Todmorden and Planned Care at Huddersfield Royal
4. One or two major A&Es in West Yorkshire, backed up by a number of minor facilities
5. If none of these – what?
None of these options suggest a complete closure of Halifax A&E - it is in fact a much more complex issue that needs an open, sensible debate.
