Letter: Government to blame for NHS cuts

editorial image

I was interested to read in Sir Greg Knight’s New Year message that “Bureaucrats at the East Riding Clinical Commissioning Group are reviewing healthcare provision at Bridlington Hospital and there is a real threat that they may attempt to cut services”.

Is this the same Sir Greg who is part of the government that has brought us Project Austerity for so many years, and introduced the bureaucrats of Clinical Commissioning Groups to take the blame when the government ducks responsibility?
