The recent events at Whipps Cross, part of Bart’s Health, increased the urgency of this meeting and put pressure on the Health and Wellbeing board to address the problems identified by the group.

Major cuts are taking place as Barts Health tries to meet debts from PFI. Whipps Cross hospital has now been absorbed into Barts Health Trust.
