There’s a meeting being held tonight (Thursday 8th Nov) at 6pm to start the fightback against the planned closure of Lewisham’s Accdent and Emergency unit. More details from: http://www.savelewishamhospital.com/
“A government appointed technocrat (Trust Special Administrator) has recommended closing Lewisham’s children’s wards, critical care unit and emergency surgery to pay massive debts at neighbouring hospitals. He wants to shut Lewisham Hospital A&E and replace it with a non-admitting Urgent Care Centre. Maternity services could be lost too, and half the hospital sold for £17million. He has also proposed a decimation of services throughout South East London, with massive job losses, privatisation and sell-offs.
The Save Lewisham A&E Campaign is now officially underway. There’s a Public Meeting on Thursday, 8th November, 6-8pm in Lessoff Auditorium at the Hosptial (Speakers: Jim Dowd MP, Heidi Alexander MP, Mayor Steve Bullock, Dr Louise Irvine, local GP and BMA council member and others).
A demonstration ‘Hands Around Our Hospital’ is planned for Saturday 24th November: 2pm, march from Loampit Vale roundabout to Lewisham Hospital, 3pm, link hands around Lewisham Hospital. Be there.”
