to Editor:- A&E
"I read with interest your
item about the visit of the Shadow Health Minister, his views are
most encouraging. Likewise those of Mark Bigley who I know is
working hard to achieve the return of the Children A&E.
However I was very surprised to
see Councillor Byrom in the picture as he has never shown any
inclination to fight for the return of the childs A&E. Indeed
as a senior town politician for many years, he could at any
time have raised objections at the Overview and Scrutiny Committee
as the move was taking place. He Didn't. Councillor Byrom is also
a Non Executive Director of the Hospital Trust Board, the Board
that implemented the changes. He could have raised objection
there. He Didn't. Why then was he in the picture, Political
oportunity perhaps. he takes the
money, but does not voice the views , or the concerns of those he
represents. Think carefully Electorate."
