Your View: Hospital deja vu

IT was with a terrible feeling of deja vu I read the front-page headlines of last week’s YP Country Times, regarding the closure of surgical services at Yorketown Hospital on April 1.

All I could think was, “Oh no, not again!”

And just like last time (2008) the government has tried to sneak it in without anyone finding out.

The government won’t be happy until they’ve herded us all back to the city to live – it’s either that or live here with dwindling healthcare and long trips on terrible roads for medical treatment.

The care and treatment relatives, friends and I have received at the hospital has always been excellent and the fact top specialists are still more than willing to come here to consult and operate shows our hospital is safe and usable.

Are they really serious about this taking place from April 1? I personally don’t think they’ve chosen this date by accident – they are hellbent on making April fools out of us!
