A quick, but considered reply is:

1. Delaying or denying the result is anti-democratic.

2. How interesting it is that some (Liberal) Democrats appear to support democracy only when it suits their own purposes.

Berwick-upon-Tweed

Service

Hospital visits are made easy

I recently experienced the valuable service the Hospital Visitor Car provides to the people of Berwick.

The car leaves Berwick Infirmary to take people to visit friends or family in Wansbeck, Cramlington and North Tyneside hospitals. It arrives for afternoon visiting, then brings you back to Berwick. Incredibly, this service is free.

My Mum was admitted to Cramlington, then North Tyneside. The lack of direct public transport from Berwick to these hospitals, or even near to them, means that if you are not a car owner then the journey is extremely difficult, lengthy and often impossible to tie in with visiting times.

Visits from family and friends play a role in a patient’s recovery and without this service I would have been unable to visit my Mum.

The visitor car needs to be pre-booked by contacting 07774 788627.
