A GP has branded the government's policy on NHS trusts as a "failure regime."
Helen Tattersfield, a GP in Lewisham, where the Accident and Emergency department at Lewisham hospital is under threat of closure, said:
This is the first time the Government has put in place its 'failure regime' for an NHS trust - and the proposed solution is to destroy services at a successful and high performing neighbouring trust.
The 'failure regime' is set to be used many more times across the UK, so if the Government can close down Lewisham Hospital then no successful hospital in the country is safe.
