Thank you to the Redbridge resident who drew my attention to a recent letter from Earl Howe, a minister from the Department of Health, to Redbridge Council which gives the impression that the Department of Health expects the CQC to give approval as safe any plans to close KGH maternity.
I don't recall seeing any such plans.
The CQC report here
does not seem to say it is safe to close KGH maternity.
I will make enquires and write further in due course.
