TOWN MP Iain Wright says proposals for a new hospital at Wynyard should be scrapped and services returned to Hartlepool if a decision on funding is not made quickly.

Mr Wright says the delay by the Government on the £272m new hospital project is taking too long and threatening health chiefs’ wider Momentum programme to transform services in the region.

His comments come after Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt refused to be drawn on whether a funding decision on the hospital would be made before next year’s General Election.
