A spokeswoman for Shaping a Healthier Future,the programme set up to review healthcare in north-west London, said: "Itis a great shame that the politicians in this north-west London borough aretaking local doctors and other highly committed NHS professionals to court.
"This is a direct legal challenge to the many doctors, nurses and other committed NHS professionals who want to improve healthcare for their patients across north-west London, and it will create a significant distraction from their day jobs.
"The court case will now mean a huge amount of extra work and resources at a time when there should be a major focus on what the NHS is actually there to do - namely, care for patients and improve local services."
