EVERY time I see the proposals for the pie in the sky new hospital my blood boils.
They can draw as many pretty pictures as they like.
But they are determined to turn a deaf ear to the desires of the taxpayers of Hartlepool.
Why can’t the North Tees & Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust, which incidentally received a vote of no confidence from Hartlepool Borough Council, turn its attention to improvement and possible enlargement of our present, centrally-located University Hospital of Hartlepool?
It would cost a fraction of the £300m anticipated by the building of a hospital at Wynyard.
It may have a postal code of Hartlepool.
But it is a foreign country to Hartlepudlians and patients from the collieries, who need a convenient hospital close to home.
The trustees are determined to bang on about a hospital that’s not wanted.
We’ve signed petitions, marched and attended meetings.
We object to a money pit of a new hospital.
Someone should arrange to have a yes/no referendum to find out what people really want and end this madness.
What is the point of being asked our opinions when they are blatantly ignored?
