Fury over Backing of Health Shake-up

The backing of a controversial shake-up of hospital services in east Lancashire by a council committee has resulted in fury among campaigners. //

East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust has proposed a plan, which also includes the downgrade of Burnley's A&E department that will now not be referred to the government.

Burnley General Hospital is expected to continue with an 'urgent care centre' catering for minor injuries and illnesses.

Gordon Prentice, the Labor MP for Pendle, described being 'appalled and outraged' at the decision.

NHS authorities asserted that the new model would allow hospitals to develop a wide range of services closer to patients' homes.
