Mid Yorkshire Hospitals Trust proposals for Dewsbury, Pontefract and Pinderfields

Have your say

The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals Trust this week announced two options for the future of services at its hospital in Dewsbury, Wakefield and Pontefract.

Under the first option, some services would be centralised at Pinderfields Hospital in Wakefield and there would be changes to the way urgent, complex and planned surgery are carried out at all three sites.

The second options bring all emergency and complex services under one roof at Pinderfields, and lead to a reduced emergency service at Dewsbury and District Hospital.

The Trust is planning a full consultation on the two options in January.

A separate consultation will take place shortly on the future of opthalmology, orthopaedic and neuro rehabilitation services.
