Peter Cater calls for suspension of A&E closures

Thank you to the Redbridge resident for pointing out the Evening Standard article at  containing the following:

"Dr Peter Carter, chief executive of the Royal College of Nursing, said the High Court victory of Save Lewisham Hospital campaigners in blocking the downgrading of their unit should herald a capital-wide review of the demands being placed on A&E departments.
He said the RCN was not opposed to closures but would not support those that were a “smokescreen” for cuts where there was no clinical evidence of better patient care."

BHRUT make assertions about better care following any closure of KGH A&E. But where is the evidence?
