Defend the Whittington Hospital Coalition Update

Dates for your diary:

20th January, Wednesday, there is a meeting of the Haringey Council Scrutiny committee meeting at which Rob Larkman, Chief Executive of the Whittington Hospital will speak. It’s at 6pm – at the Haringey Civic Centre, High Road, N22. Campaigners from the Defend Haringey Health Services are going and would welcome our mutual support.

21st January, Thursday, meeting of the Defend the Whittington Hospital Coalition, Whittington Community Centre, Yerbury Road N19.  All are welcome to help plan the campaign.

25th January, Monday, public meeting at Archway Methodist Church Hall at 7.00pm at which Rachel Tyndall of North London Central NHS will reply to questions put to her at the last public meeting.

Go to whatever you can, no-one is expecting everyone to attend all three.

Probably the most important is the one on the 25th as a good presence is necessary to show how strongly people object to the closure proposals directly to the NHS officials.

Other matters

We will send a letter to local newspapers telling people about the Defend the Whittington Hospital Coalition and asking them to join in. It also sets out the basic objections to the closure of A&E. If you have time to write your own letter in support, please do so . They can be emailed which makes it a lot easier, and they can be done any time over the next few weeks to keep the subject alive in the press.

At the next meeting we are going to discuss moving the weekly meeting to another weekday, as some people who are involved in the campaign can’t make Thursdays. We are also going to discuss getting together a list of organisations to contact to ask if they would add their names to the campaign.

Could you all think about who you know that we could approach, and perhaps getting some contact details for them? Who else you think we should get on board? If you can’t come to the meeting ¬†please email us with your ideas.

We need a map drawn of the areas that will be most affected by any closure of services at the Whittington Hospital. Is there anyone that could make a larger map so we could see where we need to concentrate our resources? It would be really helpful if someone could volunteer to do that to bring to the meeting.

We are in the process of obtaining our own website rather than the this free one currently being used. The new address will be sent out as soon as it is live.

Any thoughts or ideas, please do contribute them.
