VIDEO - Have A&E closures caused longer waiting times?

Watch the video here:















Evening Standard health correspondent Ross Lydall speaks about the latest NHS closure controversy
Michael Mansfield has been called in by four London councils to investigate whether A&E closures have led to longer waiting times for patients. 
The renowned barrister, who played a key role in Lewisham Hospital overcoming Jeremy Hunt's plans to close its A&E department last year, will provide a neutral opinion on the debate. 
Patients are arguing that they have experienced longer waiting times since departments were closed at a number of West London hospitals earlier this year. 
The Department of Health have defended their changes as being made for "clinical reasons" and welcome Mansfield's involvement in the process.
