A meeting has taken place between campaigners and a medical panel over plans to cut paediatric services at Northallerton's Friarage Hospital.
Protesters were angry when the announcement was made last week. They attended a meeting in the town today to hear the panel's reasons behind the decision.
Proposals to reduce paediatric services at the Friarage Hospital in Northallerton are to be discussed in detail.
The recommendation came in a report published by the Hambleton, Richmondshire and Whitby Clinical Commissioning Group last week.
