Our campaign against the land sell-off at Whipps Cross Hospital is gathering momentum and we could use your help.
The land would be sold for around £11 million (we have heard). Once sold, that land cannot be used to improve services at Whipps Cross. Barts Health NHS Trust which runs Whipps has a huge deficit, due in part to the massive repayments the trust has to make on PFI deals used to rebuild the Royal London (Whitechapel) and Newham Hospital. The PFI repayments are £131 million per year. £11 million would be a drop in the ocean and it is really not worth compromising the future of Whipps Cross as a viable district hospital.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like some postcards for you and your family to sign. We will need these back in early September when we plan to hand them all in to Barts Health’s Board of Directors.
