CAMPAIGNERS fighting to keep hospital services in Huddersfield plan a further protest.
They are to mount a candlelight vigil outside St Luke's Hospital, Crosland Moor, next Tuesday.
The hospital is likely to be shut as part of sweeping changes for hospital care in the town.
Mental health services now provided at St Luke's by the South West Yorkshire Mental Health Trust will be moved.
And services for elderly patients will go to the Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.
The moves are part of other controversial plans which will see key services move from Huddersfield Royal Infirmary to the Calderdale Royal Hospital in Halifax.
Now members of the campaign group fighting the proposals want to shift the focus on to St Luke's.
John Kenney, one of the campaign leaders, said Tuesday's vigil would start at 6.30pm.
"We hope members of the public will join us for a time," he said.
"We are opposed to the closure of St Luke's, which has provided services to so many people for a long number of years.
"It is a 23-acre site which provides vital services not just to elderly people but to so many others.
"We also want to know what happens to the money from the sale of the site, if that goes ahead.
"It would become a prime site for housing and must be worth many millions of pounds."
The final decision on the future of all the hospital services will be made on Tuesday, March 22. Officials from all the health trusts concerned will meet at the Galpharm Stadium in Huddersfield to make their decision.
