BBC: Lewisham A&E to be recommended for closure

The BBC is reporting that a government-appointed administrator's report on Monday will recommend the closure of Lewisham Hospital's A&E Unit (refurbished in April), with local people referred instead to the Queen Elizabeth hospital in Woolwich.

The closure would be part of a series of measures designed to help find savings after the South London Healthcare Trust (covering QE Hospital, Queen Mary in Sidcup and Princess Royal in Bromley) ran up debts of more than £150m.

The BBC has a full report here. More details to come on Monday.
