Thank you everybody for coming together to defend Lewisham Hospital during the TSA Consultation. But the battle isn’t over. We have to tell Jeremy Hunt what our hospital means to us, so there will be action on the 26th January (watch this space). And if he ignores us, we have to keep fighting for our right to decent healthcare.
Lewisham is a diverse borough with high levels of poverty, yet the TSA consultation did not do an Equalities Impact Assessment- despite their own guidelines telling them to do one. They are trying to sacrifice the hospital at the poorest neighbouring borough to the ones in debt, but not investigate how it will effect the community’s needs.
So over Christmas, show everyone at Lewisham Hospital what they mean to you by sending them a Christmas Card. Our hospital is important to us- even if we aren’t important to the TSA -and all the cards will be decoratively arranged in a powerful message to SAVE LEWISHAM HOSPITAL! We hope the staff appreciate this as they work over the holidays.
