‘Reopen A&E at Pontefract’

ON Easter Sunday April 8 at 2am I had to attend A&E with an external nosebleed, a condition which is recurring.

Due to Pontefract A&E being closed at this time, I had to travel to Pinderfields by taxi. The cost of this for a return journey was £45 and, as a pensioner, this was ill-afforded.

If Pontefract A&E was still in use the cost would have been halved.

When will the powers that be listen to the voices of the public and reopen Pontefract A&E?

We need this service.
