Unpopular plans to sell-off a third of the Whittington Hospitals buildings and axe hundreds of staff have been scrapped, with new plans retaining two out of three buildings.
Chief executive Dr Yi Mien Koh said today:
This has been genuine listening exercise. I would like to thank everyone who took part and gave us their views. Concerns were raised on four key issues: moving care closer to home, the sale of buildings, reduction in wards and our staff.
We have listened and have made major changes to our plans. We believe our strategy of better coordinated care designed around individual patient’s needs is right. We will continue our pioneering work in this field to provide high quality care to all our patients and service users.
