In the last few weeks the chief executive of the local NHS trust has accused the Save the DGH campaign of misleading the public, causing unnecessary concern and worry, and suggesting that ‘the only thing the DGH needs saving from is the Save the DGH campaign’.
What extraordinary arrogance from this extremely well-paid public servant. The recent battle is over and his changes will happen.
But he would have gained considerably more respect if he had engaged with the experienced medical advisors, community, church, business and professional representatives, and cross party politicians – and the tens of thousands of local people they represent – rather than insulting them.
I suggest an apology and a period of silence would be the best way forward for Mr Grayson.
