‘Heads must roll over catastrophic errors in HRI shake-up plan’

It’s time for ALL the hospital and health bosses behind the Huddersfield Royal Infirmary downgrade plan to stand down, a former NHS executive has said.

The bold call has come from Mike Ramsden, chairman of campaign group ‘ Let’s Save HRI ’ and himself a former hospital boss, most recently as chairman of Hull and East Yorkshire Hospital Trust.

Mr Ramsden, who grew up in the Holme Valley, has told the Examiner that “catastrophic errors” in Huddersfield and Calderdale health chiefs’ plans means they should all resign.

He has said the details in the final document, the Full Business Case (FBC), are very different from the plans consulted on with the public in 2016 and claims he has never seen an NHS reconfiguration plan handled as badly as this.
