Hospital closure has me worried

THE Belfast Telegraph article suggesting the paediatric cardiac unit at the Royal Victoria Hospital may be closed by stealth made me think (News, November 7).

Is this stealth procedure also in use in the closure of City Hospital's A&E unit? Originally, this closure was blamed on staffing problems. What is the current situation?

What efforts have been made to recruit staff and what is the target date for the reopening of the this easily accessible facility?

Silence from politicians will only further undermine their already tarnished credibility.
