The future of Slawit Health Centre has been threatened by proposed cuts to funding and increases in rent. So far our campaigning has meant we have avoided the worst, but it shows what hypocritical nonsense it was when the health authorities said, we did not need to worry about the closure of A&E in Huddersfield because there would be “care closer to home”.
across the Colne Valley, Huddersfield and indeed across the whole country, GP and other non hospital services are under pressure as never before. We want to look at what we can do to save our NHS services and guarantee decent health care for all.
All our supporters are welcome and we also welcome concerned people from other areas as this is an issue that goes well beyond Slaithwaite.
