Stop the Hospital Closures

Sign the petition!

Reorganisation of the NHS is leading to damaging changes in healthcare in Hammersmith & Fulham. Our borough's population is rising and demand is increasing. Yet, under the planned changes, access to local emergency care will be drastically reduced.

  • Charing Cross Hospital will be demolished. Much of the site will be sold off to developers to pay for redevelopment of St Mary's and a lesser facility on the remaining land.
  • Hammersmith Hospital's A&E has closed.
  • Charing Cross A&E will be downgraded to an 'emergency centre' run by GPs. There will be no Emergency Medicine consultants on site. Consultants at other sites will provide advice by phone or video link.
  • Because Charing Cross will no longer have a top-tier A&E, its world-class stroke unit will be moved to St Mary's, Paddington.
  • Charing Cross will lose 336 of its 360 in-patient beds, 93% of the total.
  • People who suffer a stroke or who need emergency surgery will have to be taken to St Mary's Paddington instead of Charing Cross. For many, travel times will increase.
  • Travel times for families and carers of these patients will also increase and journeys and parking will be more difficult and more expensive.

We call for an immediate halt to further closures of hospital services in Hammersmith & Fulham, and a full review and public consultation on the future of our local NHS.

Closure of any Hospital is nothing to be proud of. A very shameful act as it concerns the lives of poor human beings.

Election manifesto on goverment corruption used to banish a nasty british government at the general election in a few days from now.


Our local labour candidate is andy slaughter hammersmith west London England W 6 . If the bidding process for public services in west london is illegal and has involvement at cabinet parliamentary level on public service contracts for CX hospital due for closure then the hospital could be saved if the right questions get asked in parliament when the labour candidate is lobbied before he is re-elected on a safe seat.

• 20 days ago on the 15th april 2015 at st pauls community centre hammersmith london w6 a delegation was sent to see andy slaughter current westminister M.P. who is a U.K. labour member of parliament. This delegation consisted of lookahead housing with services provider cyrenian care A representative of our housing scheme Sammy (Samuel Bereket) went to Andy Slaughter electoral campaign meeting on the 15 th of April to pose a question over the procurement of the running of our scheme at 352 -354 goldhawk road. The procurement officer needed to know on the bidding process for the changing of care provider on the running of the scheme in june 2013 who the senior commisioner on the bid for the contract that validated the reliability on which the information given was used to assess the awarding of the contract on a fair ethical bidding process. The senior commissioner may have been some one on an integrated partnership with the housing provider lookahead housing that represented a police presence on the proper running of the scheme at 354 goldhawk road. The only person who worked on site for years that we can not find as a direct employee of lookahead and therefore may have been the police senior comissioner in job title may be john hunt of the chiswick area of where he could reside (10 mins to cycle to work).
Question? Why does procurement officer at the bidding process not know when i asked him on the phone who the senior commisioner was on the bidding process. This lack of transparencey is at odds with proper procurement or purchasing procedures on a contract for local community services. Who is the senior commisioner if he is a police employee. if it is john hunt mr d. thomas told me the bidding for the contract went to him to be finalised on written approval at cabinet level on health services. Was that cabinet level minister named jeremy hunt. It is illegal after scandals such as circle 33 housing association for 2 people to be well known to each other or related that work for the same council or know each other on the bidding for public services of a certain type. To stop corruption acts of law were passed at westminister. If jeremy hunt was at cabinet level caught giving written approval on lucrative public contracts and the senior commisioner was named john hunt then it is possible that the 2 hunts if from chiswick are related making the procurement unethical the signing of written approval at cabinet level corrupt to such an extent that it could be interpreted as organised crime on a cabinet level pending investigation as the hospital that is been closed down called CX by jeremy or chris hunt has had many of it’s services procured to service providers that are allied with and have the same name of housing associations such as lookahead housing of 1 derry street high street kensington west london.

. The scheme is supposed to be for vunerable adults with learning difficulties and as john hunt stated in the past “there are no violent or dangerous adults in this scheme” then why sammy from 352 goldhawk road who went to your meeting today was and maybe still is wearing security ankle tags provided by Serco security. Also if he is under curfew why at 12.40 am this morning did edward from 352 goldhawk road go to the observation room talk to the night staff still awake while under cctv and then leave the project in the dead of night with sammy while under cctv and observation of night staff if sammy is dangerous, Did the large gentleman who took sammy to see you today mr andy slaughter make you aware of the risk I am sharing this comment with 100 mps 100 news organisations and 300 lawyers or the share option to the sending of this message.

once again why was the identity of the senior commisioner (if a police employee) on a transparent bidding process not revealed as this oddness in purchasing procedure may need investigation

yours sincerely r. blaney 352L goldhawk road, hammersmith london w6 0xf

By using the edf Electricity supplier letter on the safety of the building the senior commissioner responsible for the buildings clients on health and safety can be seeked out and identified to see if there is a link to the procurement of services at top westminister government level and if this is the case the government is in trouble in the middle of an election campaign

my mother lives in W12 and has had to visit Charing Cross A and E many times.

It’s disgusting that Hammersmith Hosp has already closed the A and E ~ if Charing Cross goes as we would have to take her to St Mary’s which is much further and impossible to park ! Waiting times are long enough already so will be even worse if this goes ahead…’s unthinkable.

Please stop this attack on the NHS and our hospitals, especially concerned about Charing Cross hospital where I have been a patient for years. Disabled and people with sensory loss need a good hospital in their local area and the loss of these facilities will be a disaster. Eye operations are now not performed at Charing X but have to be conducted at the Western eye hospital in Marylebond which is simply not equipped to deal with the present situation. I is simply madness to sell off a much more modern and better equipped and situated hospital like Charing Cross and put patients in an old antiquated building where staff have to operate in franikly third world conditions and patients are discharged , still under the effects of anaesthetics, literatlly onto the street because there are no parking facilities nearby and the Marylebond road is a motorway where nobody can stop!!!! P:lease get government to abandon this crazy scheme and scrap plans to demolish Charing Cross!!!

My fantasy would be for crossparty panel to agree on management of the NHS so it would no longer be used as a political vote winner – i.e patient care & welfare would genuinely be the priority

Charing Cross is an integrated services hospital created with advanced medical thinking on cross support for patients whose ailments do not fall into one neatly segregated specialty. So far the imperial health authority had told neither patients not local doctors how it plans to replace the services it plans to demolish. Every progressive health service in the EU CREATES before it demolishes. Imperial seeks to demolish and then muddle through. I reject their approach, their goal of scattered or non-existent services.

Nurses at Charing Cross are very effective and have looked after

me very well and helped in my recovery.I say prayers that

fall ill they will be safe and well at Charing Cross.Its a wonderful

hospital for tests and procedures to enhance one.s longevity ie

Ultrasound, Endoscopy,Angioscopy, TacChometry ,Praise be to

Charing Cross!
