The A&E department at the University Hospital of Hartlepool is to close after being declared “unfit for purpose”.

No date has been set for the closure after a decision was reached by an independent review panel set up to examine its future.

They have now made several recommendations for the future of urgent care in Hartlepool and health bosses will now come up with a strategy to deliver it.
