A demonstration against the downgrading of services at Dewsbury and District Hospital will take place tomorrow (Thursday).

Save Dewsbury Hospital have organised the demo in front of the town hall at 9am following the decision by Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt not to review the proposals.

It means the number of beds at the hospital being cut from 360 to 110, the most serious emergency cases going to Wakefield’s Pinderfields Hospital, the maternity unit being downgraded to a midwife-led unit with no consultant care and the closure of the children’s ward.
