A lawyer leading a legal challenge to save Huddersfield’s A&E unit will discuss his case’s progress at a public meeting organised by campaigners.

Yogi Amin, a partner at law firm Irwin Mitchell, will update campaigners at the meeting at Lord Street Methodist Mission, on June 20 (7.30pm).

The meeting will also hear from a representative of a campaign to save a Shropshire A&E from a similar fate.

Mr Amin, a public affairs specialist, agreed to represent #HandsOffHRI and pick holes in the Right Care Right Time Right Place proposal.

Under the Right Care Right Time Right Place (RCRTRP) proposals, Huddersfield Royal Infirmary will lose its A&E department while emergency care will be centralised in Halifax.

The proposals also include a plan to eventually close the Royal Infirmary and build a smaller hospital on the Acre Mills site in Lindley.

The A&E proposals have attracted massive opposition in Huddersfield, with tens of thousands of people signing a petition and many thousands turning out for a rally and public meetings.

The meeting was originally convened by #HandsOffHRI after the group became tired of waiting for health chiefs behind RCRTRP to arrange a third public meeting. That public meeting was subsequently arranged for Monday, June 6, at the John Smith’s Stadium.

The chiefs from Greater Huddersfield and Calderdale CCGs (clinical commissioning groups) have also been invited to attend the Amin meeting.

Greater Huddersfield Chief Clinical Officer, Dr Steve Ollerton, attended an academic debate on the future of healthcare in Kirklees and Calderdale at Huddersfield University, in April.

Natalie Ratcliffe, #HandsOffHRI secretary, said: “We want to update the public on how far we have come and what our next steps are.

“We want to give the public a chance to ask pertinent legal questions to Yogi.”
