Kingston Keep Our NHS Public

Fighting cuts, closures and privatisation in our local NHS

Defend SW London’s NHS statement

Leave a comment

We are a group of organisations and individuals in South West London and Surrey that are coming together to coordinate a response to the attack on our local NHS.

We are against the closure of A&E, maternity and children’s services at two sites in this region. These closures will be disastrous for the people they currently serve. But they will also increase pressure on the services at the hospitals which do not face closures, and will push down the quality of care across the region.

We’re calling for individuals, campaign groups, local community networks, trade unions, medical professionals’ associations and others to come to an open organising meeting to discuss the way forward in resisting all cuts and closures in South West London’s NHS. We’ll be holding an initial meeting at 7.30pm on Tuesday 28th May in Collier’s Wood Community Centre, 66-72 High Street, Collier’s Wood SW19 2BY.
