Results of an official survey on a plan which would close Huddersfield’s A&E have been delayed.

The results of a public consultation on the Right Care Right Time Right Place plan were expected yesterday.

But the NHS organisation writing up a report on the results says it is not yet ready.

The NHS unit analysing the results said the report would be published at the end of August.

A spokesperson for the unit said the report would only be published when it was ‘completely satisfied’ the report met the requirements of a consultation report.

The spokesperson said the unit hoped to published the report later this week.

Under the proposal Huddersfield Royal Infirmary would be demolished and replaced with a smaller hospital with an urgent care unit – but no A&E.

Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, Acre Street, Lindley, Huddersfield.

Emergency care would be centralised at Calderdale Royal Hospital in Halifax.

Hands Off HRI: Hardly anyone responded to Huddersfield A&E closure survey - and campaigners aren't happy

Campaigners fighting to stop proposal, which would close Huddersfield’s A&E, say they hope public opposition to the plan will come out loud and clear in the results.

The imminent results follow a 14-week public consultation on the plan which included three large public information events, drop-in sessions and a survey for residents to complete.
