Medical director for North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust Dr David Emerton, who is also a consultant in accident and emergency, said:
Hundreds of campaigners have gathered in protest against the reduction of services at Hartlepool General Hospital.
It forms part of a long-running hospital saga, in which key services were transferred to Stockton and a proposed new hospital at Wynyard was delayed.
The protesters are marching from Seaton Carew to Hartlepool this morning.
