NHS announces closure of A&E and acute services at four west London hospitals
Charing Cross will close as a major hospital and all four threatened A&E departments will also be shut down, search NW London NHS announced this morning.
The decision to go ahead with the closures almost exactly as proposed last July came as no surprise following the phoney consultation exercise and leak of the plans a week ago. But the news is still devastating for two million Londoners who will now face a second-class health service unless the plans are overturned by the Secretary of State.
