Save Our Local NHS Hospitals

Here are two excellent photographs and story from August 31st © News Shopper 5/9/12/ Bexley edition.

PROTESTERS opposing a ward closure at Queen Mary’s Hospital have marched through Sidcup.
Campaigners are angry about the closure of the hospital’s gynaecological ward which treats women for conditions including cancer and fertility issues.
The ward, which closed at the weekend, has been moved to a mixed sex surgical ward at Queen Mary’s.
A group of 20 protesters travelled from Sidcup High Street to the hospital, where they presented a letter to the trust’s administrator, Matthew Kershaw.
Save Our Hospitals member Eileen Smith said: “We were supported by the passing public and many hoots from passing cars.”
An SHLT spokesman said: “We confirm that gynaecology patients will not mix with male patients while being cared for on these wards.
“We’re making changes to the way wards work to bring all our surgical wards together on one floor, so staff with surgical expertise can support each other in caring for our patients that have undergone surgery.”
