SIR - I totally agree with your comment that 'most of us believe centralising acute services is the right way forward'.

I have listened to the health professionals and am satisfied that the correct decision has been made in the interests of all patients in the E&N Herts area.

We must stop this posturing and devote our energies to ensuring that a good general hospital is provided for our community.

Our MP has said: "The only language health bosses in our area understand is legal action".

Oh dear! So he wants a judicial review. Well let him pay for it and also the costs incurred by our hospital in successfully defending this useless action.

Unfortunately, the delay will ensure that a worse service is delivered to our patients.

Let us campaign positively for the benefit of our community

Peter Bell, Brockswood Lane, WGC.
