Thank you to the Redbridge resident who told me about the Evening Standard story here
The Standard reports that Queens and King George have 9 emergency doctors, 12 fewer than required. In a welcome effort to recruit more doctors, Queens and KGH new recruits will be offered the "perk" of working with the London Air Ambulance service.
Perhaps the threat of closing KGH A&E in 2015 is a factor in the unwillingness of doctors to work for BHRUT. Why work at a trust which is struggling to cope with demand now and has a plan to close KGH A&E which will put even more pressure on the staff working at Queens?
