Members of the Lewisham Healthcare NHS Trust have heavily criticised plans to dissolve a debt-ridden NHS Trust which was on the brink of bankruptcy.
John O'Donohue, consultant physician at Lewisham Healthcare NHS Trust described the devastating effect it could have on other financially stable trusts nearby.
If services at a successful and well-run hospital like Lewisham are closed due to problems at a neighbouring trust, then no hospital in London, or the country, is safe. These plans are a travesty. They are unsafe, rushed and unjust, but most of all will disadvantage the people of Lewisham, who will have to travel further to already overcrowded neighbouring A&E and maternity units - units which, ironically, have themselves been diverting ambulances and pregnant women to Lewisham in recent days due to lack of capacity.
