The Independent Review Panel

The Secretary of State for Health, Mr Andrew Lansley, has decided that the Independent Reconfiguration Panel will make an in-depth study of the Health for North East London proposals for the changes to the healthcare in Redbridge, Havering, Waltham Forest and Barking and Dagenham. This Panel will then make a recommendation to Andrew Lansley, which he will decide upon.

A team of senior experienced healthcare professionals will make a number of visits to north east London to inspect Kings and Queens hospitals and meet patients, clinicians and other staff. They will also hold meetings to hear from a range of interested parties, including local authority representatives and interest groups. The Panel will send its report to Andrew Lansley on 22 July 2011.

You can play a part in this assessment exercise. The Independent Review Panel would like to hear from anyone who is interested in the Health for North East London proposals – especially if they have evidence to offer or feel that they want to be heard.

People can contact the IRP by e mail at:, by calling 0207 389 8046 or by writing to the Independent Reconfiguration Panel at 6th Floor, 157 – 197 Buckingham Palace Road, LONDON SW1W 9SP. If you wish to ensure that your input is taken into account, it is best to get the material to the Independent Review Panel by the end of June.
