North Central London NHS Strategy Plan 2010 – 2014
Submitted by Dave Morris of Defend Haringey’s Health Services Coaltion; NHS NCL Strategy Plan distributed by Lynne Featherstone MP.
We now have the NHS official proposals for North Central London area. The key pages are pages 79-82 with the ‘7 scenarios’.
Its clearly an attack on the services at all North London’s hospitals, and we have to stick together and resist any ‘divide and rule’ tactics.
All of the scenarios seem to downgrade most of the Hospitals with only one scenario maintaining any of the 6 hospitals as a District General Hospital (Scenario 1 – for Barnet and North Middx).
Re: Whittington specifically:
– All ‘scenarios’ include an ‘Urgent Care Centre’.
– 3 scenarios include full A&E retained, 2 scenarios retain just 16hrs A&E, 2 scenarios have no A&E.
It needs checking carefully… but the battle is well and truly on.
