White paper response condemns cuts

AN OPEN letter in response to Health Minister Michael Ferguson, the Mersey Community Hospital Support Group is scathing about the impacts of the White Paper on North-West hospital services and ultimately residents’ health outcomes.

Penned by Support Group Chairman Steve Martin, the letter states that the White Paper had practically lessened life expectancy on the North West Coast through the closure of a High

Dependency Unit, reduction of Emergency Department capabilities, reduced ICU functions and intensified patient transfers.
