King George Hospital – Catch Up

We are informed that Lee Scott MP will present the Parliamentary petition to Andrew Lansley in the House of Commons on Wednesday 6 July. The petition totalled 32,000 signatures so a big well done to everybody involved for helping to get such a great result.

Meanwhile, last Wednesday, there was the meeting with the Independent Reconfiguation Panel.

You can read Roger Evans AM submission on his blog here, and also note the comment from ‘sjm’.

Cllr Andy Walker went along to support Neil Zammett with his submission, which can be found here, via the Chadwell Labour blog.

On the same day it was reported that a major investigation had been started by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) into standards of care provided by the Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust, with particular emphasis on Maternity care.

There is a photo shoot today outside the Health for North East London Office, Becketts House on Ilford Hill, where a letter signed by local MPs and councillors from all parties will be delivered and calling for the reorganisation to be withdrawn while the Trust is in such difficulties.

There is also a meeting on Friday evening in Romford re: Queens.
