I have received a letter from
a member of staff at Bridlington Hospital, no wonder the hospital is having
problems......The Trust continue to batter the hospital from all sides
The letter is not signed because the person fears for there job, rightly
so. Had it been signed lid would be off and the Trust exposed
Your views would be interesting,
Regards Mick Pilling
A plea by a nurse working at Bridlington Hospital expressing worries about
what is happening to services there is being taken to Westminster.
Mick Pilling, Chairman of the Save Bridlington Hospital Campaign Action
Group has met Bridlington MP Greg Knight and local councillors to highlight
the worries of the staff working at the hospital.
Mr Pilling met Mr Knight, together with councillor Geoff Pickering (Bridlington
South ward) and Councillor Richard Harrap (Bridlington North ward) to
draw these concerns about the future of the hospital to their attention.
The nurse, who wishes to remain anonymous for fear of management reprisals,
says that services moving services to Scarborough Hospital is a mistake
as they ‘do not have the facilities to cope.’
The nurse complains that there are now more managers and executives ‘than
there has ever been;’ and says ‘other things have been cut
like training,’ adding that this has left staff ‘feeling vulnerable……’
Mr Knight said that he ‘still has serious concerns about the hospital’
and told Mr Pilling he would draw the contents of the letter to the attention
of Health Minister Andy Burnham MP and also would be sending a copy to
the Shadow Health Minister Andrew Lansley MP.
