WE'RE taking YOUR fight against health changes to Westminster.
Examiner editor Roy Wright and news editor Neil Atkinson are tonight in London - presenting health secretary Patricia Hewitt with a huge pile of protest letters from you.
A total of 7,127 Examiner readers have signed our letter to Ms Hewitt so far, pleading for a rethink on moves to switch key hospital services from Huddersfield to Halifax.
Local health chiefs agreed on March 22 to transfer maternity, gynaecology and orthopaedic surgery to Calderdale Royal Hospital.
Proposals were approved despite widespread protest in the "consultation" period leading up to the crunch decisions.
Roy - pictured with your protest letters - and Neil joined our three local MPs, Kali Mountford, Barry Sheerman and Mary Creagh to Parliament for a private teatime meeting with Ms Hewitt.
The pair will get their chance to speak specifically on behalf of Examiner readers.
Roy said: "We're calling for an urgent review of the circumstances surrounding the decisions.
"We want to delay their implementation until such a review has been completed.
"The response to our letter has been overwhelming - almost a quarter of our nightly readers have responded - and shows the depth of concern across the town about the moves across all ages and classes.
"At the moment there is a genuine feeling that the reforms have been pushed through irrespective of the feelings of the people of Huddersfield in a totally undemocratic manner.
"We want a review of all the decisions, a review which incorporates the needs and wishes of the people - not just the plans of the health executives."
We'll have a full follow-up report in tomorrow's Examiner.
