Health: A&E campaign gets backing from political heavyweight

Campaigners took the fight to Save our A&E to the heart of government yesterday when a delegation from Band Together to Save our A&E went to London to make their voices heard.

The group met with Shadow Health Secretary Andy Burnham MP, who is fully behind the campaign to ensure Calderdale A&E is saved from closure and handed over petitions with hundreds of signatures.

MP for Halifax Linda Riordan said: “I am delighted that Labour’s shadow Health Minister Andy Burnham is backing the campaign to save the A&E.

“We have now collected over 2,000 names on petitions and these were presented to Parliament.

“It is another boost for the campaign but we still have a long way to go in securing the future of Calderdale A&E.”
