Bus company East Yorkshire has announced that from 5 September it will be revamping its Beverley and Hornsea buses to create more opportunities for travel in the towns.
The improvements, which are the biggest shake-up of buses in the area for several years, will include two new services around Beverley, plus a new link to allow Hornsea residents to get directly to Castle Hill Hospital without having to change buses.
Graham Stuart has welcomed Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt’s decision to refer the decision to close the Minor Injuries Units (MIUs) at Hornsea and Withernsea to the Independent Reconfiguration Panel (IRP).
The panel, an advisory non-departmental public health body, specialise in reviewing cases involving changes to NHS services.
The Viewfinder Photographic Society’s (VPS) annual photography exhibition in Skidby gets underway once again at the beginning of October this year.
Figures show that visitor numbers broke all records last year, proving that the free exhibition of club members’ images is now a well-established and appreciated fixture in the community’s calendar of events.
The future of urgent care services in the East Riding of Yorkshire have today been confirmed, with three urgent care centres open 365 days per year set to be introduced in Beverley, Bridlington and Goole, replacing the current minor injury units across the region.
The decision was also made to create an integrated community and intensive rehabilitation centre in Beverley, which will be supported by Time to Think beds, meaning current community hospital beds in Bridlington and Withernsea will close. A number of Time to Think beds will be located in Holderness and Bridlington.
MP Graham Stuart and the Mayor of Beverley Cllr Robert Begnett are urging locals to protest against the possible closure of the East Riding Community Hospital Minor Injuries Unit even though it already looks likely to escape the NHS axe.
Plans for closures of the region’s MIUs are currently being debated by the East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group, and with millions of pounds needed to be saved, at least three of the region’s six units will be closed.
