Labour says today's announcement from Jeremy Hunt is "deeply worrying". The London Assembly's member for Ealing and Hillingdon added:
"The Secretary of State had a chance today to announce Ealing and Charing Cross would stay open as fully functioning and resourced A&E units, but all he said was they will stay open 'in a different shape or size'.
"This sounds very similar to the original announcement on Lewisham Hospital's A&E, which led to the ill-fated attempt to downgrade them."
