Whittington Hospital: public meeting on Thursday

Lynne Featherstone, Robert Gorrie and others protesting against proposals to end A+E at the WhittingtonSitting right near the border between Haringey and Islington, the Whittington Hospital performs a vital service for both. Its A+E services are under threat of closure and Hornsey & Wood Green MP Lynne Featherstone has organised a public meeting for this Thursday (4 March) where the health chiefs can explain their plans and then hear what people think about them. Given the importance of showing the strength of public feeling when it comes to swaying their minds, a good turnout at the meeting is important.

There’s plenty of campaigning also going on over on the Islington side of the borough boundary, as you can see from the Save Whittington Hospital site [now defunct].
