At a meeting earlier this evening in Ilford Town Hall, Dr Moore, a senior NHS Manager said the NHS did not know when planned c sections would be coming back to Queens and KGH from the Homerton. A formal press release is to be issued shortly. The news is puzzling to me, other hospitals perform planned c sections, why can't Queens and KGH? I look forward to the press release.
Other issues at the meeting included the welcome news that the NHS will be posting up news of temporary A&E closures on a NHS website and that figures on hospital length of stay reductions and any subsequent readmissions will be provided to cllrs.
A request for officers to see if Andrew Lansley's decision to close KGH A&E and maternity could be challenged in court was refused.
