Fight to keep hospital open

How lucky we are to have such an excellent resource in the Whitby Hospital.

I had an accident on Easter Sunday which resulted in a painful burn to my foot and received prompt, professional treatment from the minor injuries staff who were very kind and helpful.

The thought of having to go to Scarborough with such a burn makes me wince.

In an emergency we need somewhere accessible and with the number of visitors we attract in Whitby there will always be emergencies.

We must fight to keep our hospital open. I certainly will.
