A public debate on the future of hospital services in the area will be held at Ealing Town Hall on Wednesday 26 September at 7pm.
NHS North West London is consulting people on plans that could change the way hospital services are provided. The NHS’ preferred option proposes more community-based services as well as the centralisation of some services at fewer hospitals including the closure of four out of the nine Accident & Emergency units in the area.
Representatives from the NHS and the Save our Hospital Campaign will present their arguments for and against the proposals and answer questions from the audience.
The debate will be hosted by Victoria Macdonald, health and social care correspondent, Channel 4 News.
All political parties on Ealing Council oppose the proposals and councillors are urging anyone who lives or works in the borough to get behind the campaign to Save Our Hospitals by signing a petition and responding to the NHS consultation.
