We win Review of Hospital Closures! (Feb 2013)

Campaign wins review of hospital closure decision

Secretary of State for Health Jeremy Hunt today agreed to refer last week’s decision to close the A&E departments at Hammersmith, Charing Cross, Central Middlesex and Ealing Hospitals for independent review.

The unexpected but welcome announcement came at Health Questions in the House of Commons.  Mr Hunt was responding to a question from Andy Slaughter, MP for Hammersmith and Secretary of the Save our Hospitals Campaign:

Mr Andy Slaughter (Hammersmith) (Lab):

‘Last week’s decision to close four north-west London A& Es, including Charing Cross and Hammersmith in my constituency, will shortly be on the Secretary of State’s desk, as he predicts. It was referred by Labour Ealing council because Tory Hammersmith and Fulham council supports the closures. Will the Secretary of State refer the matter for independent review? This is the biggest hospital closure programme in the history of the NHS. It will see a world-class hospital downgraded to 3% of its size.’

Mr Jeremy Hunt:

‘I am aware how concerned people are throughout north-west London about the proposals. If the matter is referred to me by Ealing council, I will indeed ask the independent reconfiguration panel for its independent view on the proposals.’
