Letter: Shuttle service ... it’s not over yet

The Scarborough to Bridlington shuttle bus service could be terminated.
The Scarborough to Bridlington shuttle bus service could be terminated.

It’s been so pleasing to see these last couple of weeks how residents of Bridlington, Driffield, Flamborough, Kilham and Sewerby opposing Scarborough and Ryedale Clinical Commissioning Group’s decision to terminate the shuttle bus service between Bridlington and Scarborough Hospitals.

I am not so pleased though, to see folks at this stage suggesting to settle the issue by making concessions.

The clinical group will have a procedure in place to deal with scenarios like this issue.

So until campaigners exhaust the procedure of a formal complaint to the trust, then the next level – the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman, Millbank Tower, Millbank, London SW1P 4QP – I would be keeping my powder dry, and not even considering as a possibility a compromise at this stage.
