A government challenge to overturn a High Court ban on planned cuts at Lewisham Hospital is to be heard today.
Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt suffered an embarrassing defeat when changes to emergency and maternity services were declared "unlawful" in July.
The government lost the case because the cuts were judged to be in breach of the National Health Services Act 2006.
The Health Secretary was attempting to deal with problems created by the financial collapse of neighbouring South London Healthcare NHS Trust, which went into administration after it started losing more than £1 million a week.
