Protests May be Held against Health Service Cuts
According to a recent report, the North Yorkshire Councilors are planning to hold protests against the health service cuts in the country.
Voting is to be held in the subsequent week on the same issue in which the members of the county council will participate against the reduction in the health services or their quality. They are will stand by a strong motion in favor of no decline in the services offered by the NHS trusts and hospitals in North Yorkshire and York.
The motion says, "This Council, whilst acknowledging the financial issues facing the NHS North Yorkshire & York, considers there is no room to reduce the healthcare services currently provided to local residents and visitors".
It further asserts that the services are crucial to meet immediate and urgent needs of the people and the residents anticipate Accidents & Emergency Services to be available to them every minute. In addition, it also put forward the need of 24/7 guided maternity and children services.
Further, the councilors said in the motion that the days and hours of services currently available at the hospitals in North Yorkshire should not decline and shall retain their level. It was proposed the County Councilor Jim Clark and supported by his deputy County Councilor John Blackie.
