Wes takes A&E fight to Number 10 with cross-party delegation

Wes Streeting, Redbridge Council's Cabinet Member for Health and Labour's Parliamentary Candidate for Ilford North, today led a cross-party delegation, to petition the Prime Minister to abandon plans to close Accident and Emergency at King George Hospital. 

 

The delegation of councillors from Redbridge, Havering and Barking & Dagenham, included Opposition Leader Cllr Paul Canal. 

Just this week, the local NHS have confirmed that the closure plans have not changed and A&E is set to close as soon as they are able to do so 'safely'. Local councillors remain united in opposition to the closure. 

Wes Streeting said: "So long as the A&E closure plan remains on the table, I will continue to fight tooth and nail to oppose them. Politicians in Westminster should be under no illusions about the strength of feeling locally and the Prime Minister must honour his pre-pledge on A&E, having already broken his promise on the maternity closure."
