Christmas Round Up

December has been a busy month, with some important developments in the campaign. 

We started the month with the CASUALTY CONVOY, organised by the Ealing branch of Save Our Hospitals. Dozens of cars, suitably festooned, followed a route taking in all of the threatened hospitals. The convoy passed thousands of local people and Christmas shoppers, promoting the campaign throughout with specially decorated cars and banners. Thank you to everyone who helped to organise or who took part in the convoy, it was a hoot - literally. 

Although the convoy may now be over, you can still support the campaign by buying one of our handy car stickers, for a suggested minimum donation of £1. We now also have beautiful Save our Hospitals T-Shirts for a suggested donation of £10. If you are interested in these, or any other campaign merchandise please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


NHS NW London finally announced the results of its consultation. We've known throughout this process that the NHS wanted option "A" - they've told us, and two hospital trusts have been using public money to actively campaign for it, in the full knowledge that it would close Charing Cross completely and downgrade hospitals and A&Es all over West London.

But the distortion and misrepresentation they used in presenting their finding took our breath away!

Save Our Hospitals Reaches Downing Street

Our campaign to Save Hammersmith and Charing X Hospitals recently reached an important landmark with the handing in of our petition to 10 Downing Street.

A delegation of our dedicated volunteers, headed by our Chair Carlo Nero and Secretary Andy Slaughter MP, joined the chair of the Save Ealing Hospital Campaign, Julian Bell, the leader of Ealing Council and Dean Gilligan, our GMB representative, to submit our petition of over 70,000 signatures to Number 10. 

They were joined by a strong crowd of campaigners and concerned local residents, who marked the occasion with a friendly demonstration opposite the gates of Downing Street.

The strong groundswell of community anger against these disastrous plans to close our A&Es can be evidenced through the enthusiastic support for our petition and by the sheer number of people who signed it in a such a short space of time. The petition will continue and we would encourage anyone who still wants to sign, that they can still do so.
