Dear Sir or Madam
The recent CQC report covered in the Recorder last week makes it clear that Queens and King George Hospitals need more doctors and nurses, not fewer, which is what would happen if King George A&E and maternity were to close.
The closure plan meant 8% of medical staff were to be sacked by the end of this year. However, while this will not be happening now, the public and the medical staff have the right to know what NHS management intend to do with staffing levels for this year and a clarification from the NHS in the Recorder next week would be welcome.
