Hammersmith & Fulham Council is calling on all residents to join together and fight the latest plans to close Charing Cross Hospital at a public meeting on Tuesday, 29 November.
NHS bosses have re-launched their flawed plan in a new report – the “North West London STP” – and still have the demolition of Charing Cross Hospital, and the sale of much of its site, as a key part of their scheme. H&F Council has totally rejected this plan – and needs your help to fight it all the way.
Cllr Stephen Cowan, Hammersmith & Fulham Council leader, said:
“For the last two years, this council has been fighting alongside residents to save Charing Cross Hospital from proposals to demolish it and replace it with an Urgent Care Clinic that would be just 13% the size of the original hospital.
“We commissioned a public inquiry led by Michael Mansfield QC that has provided a strong evidence base for why the proposals are wrong, and have this week started official proceedings to stop NHS bosses closing our hospital. If they don’t listen, we will go to court.
“But now more than ever, we need all our residents to demonstrate the strength of local support to save our hospital.”
You can help the campaign to save Charing Cross Hospital by:
