Bin the KGH closure plan to help recruit Doctors

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?
