Imperial Protest - Lobby and Annual General Meeting
The board of Imperial NHS Trust seems determined to push on with closing Charing Cross Hospital despite clear evidence of a lack of capacity in acute services and unrealistic expectations about how much clinical work community services could cope with.
It's important to recognise that both Hammersmith & Fulham and Ealing councils have refused to sign up to the STPs on the basis that it would mean signing up to the closure of CX and Ealing Hospitals. Most local people fully support this stance and will be horrified to hear of suggestions that the councils may lose out in funding or influence in some areas as a result.
We'll be lobbying outside Imperial NHS Trust's AGM to make these points and then attending the meeting to listen to the debate and hopefully ask questions at the end. (Flyer attached.)
