South Tyneside Hospital and its staff have given my handicapped brother extra years of life.
His cancer treatment and heart problems under constant review and general health “emergencies” over the years have all been handled quickly and with empathy.
How in current traffic problems, such as those in winter, will emergency services get through to Sunderland or Newcastle in time if services are cut?
My brother only lived in Jarrow.
When will those handling the “purse strings of emergency services” stop trying to run them on “just enough money to cope” principles?
Am I glad that I no longer live in this area.
