Letters to Editor:- A&E

"I read with interest your item about the visit of the Shadow Health Minister, his views are most encouraging. Likewise those of Mark Bigley who I know is working hard to achieve the return of the Children A&E.
However I was very surprised to see Councillor Byrom in the picture as he has never shown any inclination to fight for the return of the childs A&E. Indeed as a senior town politician for many years, he could at any time have raised objections at the Overview and Scrutiny Committee as the move was taking place. He Didn't. Councillor Byrom is also a Non Executive Director of the Hospital Trust Board, the Board that implemented the changes. He could have raised objection there. He Didn't.  Why then was he in the picture, Political oportunity perhaps.  he takes the
money, but does not voice the views , or the concerns of those he represents. Think carefully Electorate."
