A decision is expected today in a judicial review of the government decision to close some services at Lewisham Hospital.
Under the plan the A&E, acute admissions, intensive care, children's and maternity units are all threatened with closure.
Lawyers for the Save Lewisham Hospital Campaign, argued that the decision by the Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, to cut some of the hospital's services was unlawful and had asked the Courts to quash it and ask the Health Secretary to reconsider.
The Save Lewisham Hospital Campaign was formed in 2012, after the South London Healthcare trust special administrator proposed, as part of the cost saving measures put forward for the neighbouring trust, South London Healthcare NHS Trust, that services at Lewisham Hospital should be reduced.
