Protest against Lewisham A&E closure

Tomorrow, Lewisham residents will protest against the planned closure of Lewisham A&E and the cessation of some other services currently provided by Lewisham Hospital.

The protest on Saturday 24th November will march from Loampit Vale roundabout at 2pm, and link hands around Lewisham Hospital at 3pm, with a rally held afterwards in Ladywell Fields.

Another Public Meeting, organised by the Save Lewisham Hospital Campaign will be held on Wednesday 28th November at 7pm in the Broadway Theatre, Catford, with Dr John Lister and Dr Louise Irvine of Lewisham Hospital speaking.

Dr Irvine commented:

“This is not a difficult decision that the government is making - it is a deadly decision. The extra distance and time it will take to travel to the Queen Elizabeth hospital in Woolwich will mean that those who need urgent medical attention may be forced to pay with their lives."
