MOUNT Druitt MP Richard Amery has made a desperate plea to Premier Barry O'Farrell to intervene on the "dangerous" closure of the Mount Druitt cardiac ward.
The relocation of the ward to Blacktown was debated in state parliament on Thursday.
It comes after hospital volunteers were featured on A Current Affair last week.
Mr Amery accused health officials of misleading the current and previous state governments.
"This reminds me of the old public service trick — highlighted in the comedy show Yes Minister — where a bureaucrat puts a proposal in an internal report that no-one sees then digs it out later to say that it was always there," he said in his speech.
"The shadow minister for health and the Leader of the Opposition have continued to say, as does the Minister for Health, that these matters are operational, yet they call for serious policy decisions affecting the health of many residents."
He told the Star the decisions of the Premier and Health Minister Jillian Skinner not to take part in the debate were "arrogant".
That was left to western Sydney MPs Bart Bassett and Kevin Conolly.
"Volunteers at the Mount Druitt campus have been invited to meet with the general manager," Mr Conolly said.
Mr Bassett said the ward's relocation was included in the 2009-10 Clinical Service Plan and the relocation will ensure "world-class cardiac services for western Sydney".
