IF you read carefully what the CCG’s chief officer said there is no guarantee that A&E services will return to Eastham.

I quote him: “If we see an improvement we will move services back to Eastham clinic.”

Note the “IF!”

Given how long it already takes to be seen at Arrowe Park Hospital, this closure seems totally illogical.

Residents of Eastham, Bromborough and Bebington now face a long trek to the hospital by public transport or a stressful attempt to find a parking space there. I also note the Sainsbury’s park and ride service is closing or already has done.

Perhaps the CCG hope we’ll just give up and die quietly at home?
