Monthly email update from Vince Cable
Some reassuring news on local hospitals. Some painful planned closures in North West and South West London seem likely to leave Kingston and West Middlesex Hospitals retaining full A+E and maternity wards. I have had reassuring meetings with both hospitals.
They will be under more pressure and community services, as with mental health services, are already stressed. I personally am skeptical about the belief - driven by hospitals - that big is beautiful, even if more remote.
