Putting Hartlepool first

I WAS pleased to read that a number of services may return to the University Hospital of Hartlepool (Mail, January 9 and 13).

If this is the case then I, for one, would like to say a big thank you to the Save our Hospital group and would urge them to keep campaigning and some day we may see the return of the accident and emergency department.

I would also like to remind our elected members that they have a duty to fight for the people of Hartlepool and should be fighting alongside the Save our Hospital group to secure the return of all hospital services.

Let’s face it, they should be putting Hartlepool first.
