Public meeting to defend Charing Cross Hospital against continuing threat
Hammersmith Town Hall
“The plan to bulldoze Charing Cross Hospital and replace it with a small clinic remains,” said Cllr Stephen Cowan, Leader of Hammersmith & Fulham Council, who will be speaking at the event. “We believe we can win the fight to save the hospital, but we still need residents’ support.”

In 2013, the Shaping a Healthier Future (SaHF) plan was signed off by the Secretary of State. It is gradually being implemented across north west London. It includes a plan to:
Demolish the current Charing Cross Hospital and sell off most of the site
Replace the current Charing Cross Hospital with a series of clinics on a site no more than 13% the size of the current hospital
Rebrand these clinics as a ‘local hospital’
Replace the current A&E with an urgent care clinic
Lose more than 300, and possibly all, of the acute care beds.
“Make no mistake - we view this as the closure of Charing Cross Hospital as it is now”, added Cllr Cowan. “Health chiefs argue that by rebranding what would be a series of clinics as a ‘local hospital’ they’re simply ‘transforming’ it. This is the basis of their bizarre claim that there have never been any plans to close Charing Cross Hospital.”

Ealing campaigners challenge viability of North West London hospital closure plans

A group of campaigners from Ealing Save Our NHS have written a hard-hitting, factually-based critique of the plans for the closure of acute services at Ealing and Charing Cross Hospitals, which are still being promoted by NW London CCGs despite the very real doubts over the viability of the plans or availability of the capital required ...
