St Helier a lesson for Redbridge?

Thanks to Helen for pointing out developments in South London to me per the link below.

The report says

"The preferred option for health bosses involved in the review was for St Helier and Epsom Hospital to lose their A&E and maternity departments and the equivalent departments at Croydon, St George's and Kingston to expand by 2017-18.
But the plans are now off the table, at least until new recommendations are published in June"

This suggests Redbridge CCG, working with other local CCGs could sink the plan to close King George Hospital A&E. Will Redbridge Council be lobbying the Redbridge Clinical Commissioning Group over this?
