Public Meeting 7:30pm Friday 14 November Barkingside Library
MPs Mike Gapes and Lee Scott along with Cllr Wes Streeting, Redbridge Council Health spokesperson will say why the plan to close King George A&E needs to be abandoned must be the recommendation of the major piece of work commissioned by BHRUT into the feasibility of closing KGH A&E.
The September BHRUT AGM papers annouce the major piece of work below:
Key risks to the strategy
HfNEL focused principally on quality, with financial sustainability considered f
or northeast London as a whole, and due to the loss of income and significant capital
development needed at Queen’s, the overall impact of the changes on BHRUT’s
financial position is expected to be negative. Implementation of the changes is
predicated on significant productivity improvements that have not yet been realised,
including reduction in length of stay to create sufficient bed capacity at Queen’s to
deal with the additional activity it will see.
Although the Trust is committed to following through on the above elements and
delivering them, before embarking on any other aspects, we have asked for a major
piece of work to take place to look again at the data – including projected population
and demand – that was used to develop the original Health for North East London
proposals. ENDs My emphasis
