WHILE the Ex­pres­sion of In­ter­est phase has reopened for com­mu­nity in­put over the site of the new hos­pi­tal, it is worth hear­ing from those landown­ers dis­ap­pointed their site was not cho­sen in the orig­i­nal round. Many felt they were not given enough airplay to sell the pos­i­tives of their sites. How­ever, I have no doubt sim­i­lar con­cerns are raised for all in­fra­struc­ture projects of this size across the coun­try. We’re with the doc­tors when we say we have faith in the peo­ple who build hos­pi­tals ev­ery day for a liv­ing. They would no doubt have an­tic­i­pated an out­cry over their site se­lec­tion – wher­ever it may be. While we await the fi­nal out­come, let’s not for­get those strug­gling to look af­ter our sick res­i­dents.
