Malton MP 'delighted' at changes to hospital unit's opening hours

The Malton MP, Anne McIntosh, has welcomed the announcement that Malton's Minor Injuries Unit will be reopened on weekday evenings and during the day at weekends. It follows the controversial reduction of hours at the unit to save money in December.

I welcome reinstating daytime opening hours during the weekend. The Unit serves the farming community, many racehorse trainers and others who are at risk of injuries and need swift treatment. I am delighted that the voice of local people responding to the consultation has been heard and that the Minor Injuries Unit will be open during the day, seven days a week.

– Anne McIntosh MP, Thirsk Malton and Filey
