A&E closed at birthplace of NHS by Jeremy Hunt

NHS' heart was ripped off by the Health Secretary as he was accused of risking several lives after shutting down the A&E unit at its birthplace. What's more, he did not even inform the local MP.

Without alerting the local MP, Jeremy Hunt announced closure of a vital department at the Trafford General Hospital and this led to a fury.

Health bosses had stated that services in Greater Manchester had to be redesigned but he seem not to pay any heed to this.

They even stated that the A&E department treated only seven people on an average per day at its busiest hour.
