Hands Off HRI campaigners are celebrating their first anniversary - and bid to carry on their fight!

It's a year since the campaign group as formed after it was announced HRI's A&E could close

One whole year has passed since the Hands off HRI campaign was launched.
The campaign was set up to fight the local NHS’s plan to close Huddersfield Royal Infirmary’s A&E and move patients to Calderdale .
And what a year it’s been.
The news was first revealed early on January 15, 2016, that Huddersfield’s A&E could close, and Huddersfield Royal Infirmary could be demolished.
Part of the Right Care Right Time Right Place plan, the NHS said it was about making local services more efficient.
But the community was shocked - and the Hands Off HRI campaign group was quickly formed.
Their first event was a huge rally in St George’s Square on February 27, followed by a trip round town in the Examiner’s Battle Bus .
Throughout the year the tireless campaigners have never stopped their fight, hosting dozens of public rallies, fundraising events, and handed in a petition with more than 130,000 signatures to Number 10 and the department of health - never giving up, even when people said they thought it was a done deal.
The decision to go ahead with the plans was finally made in October - and even then campaigners refused to give up, announcing ‘the gloves are off!’
Since then they have held more fundraising events, had a meeting with a top lawyer and held protest rallies and meetings.
