The government is making health organisations across England implement 5 year plans to cut debts and budgets and to shift care from hospitals to the community. The plan for Waltham Forest includes cutting emergency surgery at Whipps Cross at night and instead taking patients to the Royal London hospital in Whitechapel. This will directly threaten A&E and Maternity at Whipps Cross Hospital.
Down-load the attached leaflet for more information and write to your MP Stella Creasy (Walthamstow), Iain Duncan Smith (Chingford and Woodford Green) or John Cryer (Leyton and Wansted), to ask what they are doing to ensure we don’t loose our A&E and Maternity Services at Whipps Cross Hospital.
