Save King George Hospital Meeting Redbridge Town Hall Midday Friday 22 January

The next meeting of the save King George Hospital campaign team will take place this Friday 22 January at Redbridge Town Hall at midday..

The decision of BHRUT to remove blood testing for under 7s from King George Hospital earlier this month without notifying Councillors will be discussed. This reduction of service is wrong because it will for

  1. Will mean missing more time of work for some parents,
  2. Missing more time from school for children,
  3. Adding to congestion, pollution and risk of accidents

For those families closer to King George than Queens. The BHRUT twitter account account relies on the CQC as authority for the closure. It does no such thing it says the service needs improving, which is what BHRUT should have done instead of closing it.

Slowly reducing bold testing at King George will mean that the pathology lab on the King George Site can be closed in stages, rather than in go which would likely be more difficult for the Queens pathology lab to cope with.

Redbridge Clinical Commissioning Group who have the power to instruct BHRUT to start blood testing again for the under 7s meet in Ilford on the 28th January at 1:30pm. Perhaps there will be sufficient support for a photoshoot outside the meeting at 1:15pm asking for the return of under 7 blood testing to King George.

BHRUT have been offered a right of reply to be published on this site.
