Notices of Motion

To be moved by Councillor C A Dickinson and seconded by Councillor D M Blades:

 

“NHS acute services across the Tees Valley, South Durham and the northern part of North Yorkshire are currently being reviewed as part of ‘The Better Health Programme’.  The Review includes 24 hour accident and emergency (A&E) services, 24 hour consultant-led maternity services and 24 hour consultant-led paediatric services.

 

These services are accessed at the Darlington Memorial Hospital by Hambleton residents and the 24/7 consultant-led maternity and paediatric services at the hospital were specifically committed by the NHS as an important alternative provision when the similar services were downgraded at The Friarage Hospital in 2014.

 

Hambleton District Council:

 

calls upon the Better Health Programme review to take into account the needs of its residents and communities, many of them rural in nature, that rely upon these critical care services remaining at the Darlington Memorial Hospital.

 

And expects the Review to honour the commitment to maintain them at the Darlington Memorial Hospital in line with the assurances given to residents in the District during the review of services provided at the Friarage in 2014.”
