MPs response to TSA report presented to Jeremy Hunt

‘As the three Members of Parliament representing Lewisham constituencies, we wish to set out the reasons why we believe the Secretary of State for Health should reject proposals from the Special Administrator to the South London Healthcare Trust (SLHT) to close the A&E and maternity services at Lewisham Hospital. We question whether the Trust Special Administrator (TSA) has the power in law to make recommendations which affect Lewisham Healthcare NHS Trust, and whether the Secretary of State, in response to these recommendations, has the power to take a decision which results in the loss of A&E and maternity services at Lewisham Hospital – a solvent, successful hospital which is not part of the Trust to which the TSA was appointed…”

Hi All
Many, many thanks to the fifteen or so who braved the cold and persistent snow flurries yesterday at the New Den, Millwall. Now I know the true meaning of the “Cold Blow Lane End”!

The weather hit everything! Attendance was way down from that at Charlton last week and despite yards of damp plastic sheeting trying to keep the petition dry, the signature count was reduced to just over 300. But we gave out well over 3000 leaflets and the reception from fans was great. Thanks to the total support of the club, material on their website etc awareness is high and a good few said they intended to come to the demo. The T shirts and new badges were worn as promised by playing staff And stewards and we raised over £115 donations for the button badges.

We said we’d be there and we were!

WILL CONFIRM LEAFLETTING AT FRIDAY NIGHT’s CUP TIE WITH ASTON VILLA. WATCH THIS SPACE.
