A public meeting is being held to discuss plans to cut children's services at a hospital in North Yorkshire.
No overnight paediatric care or any special baby care will be available at the Friarage Hospital in Northallerton if NHS proposals go ahead.
It would mean that families would have to travel to larger hospitals like The James Cook, Middlesbrough.
Nine public meetings are being held over the next few weeks to discuss the plans. The first takes place in Thirsk tonight.
Dr Vicky Pleydell, a representative of the Commissioning Group, says changes are about ensuring the services on offer are safe.
