A public consultation into the future of Camden’s Margaret Pyke Centre is due to end on Wednesday.
The consultation has caused controversy after suggesting the sexual health centre should either be closed or suffer huge job losses.
Campaign group Save the Margaret Pyke Centre has described the consultation as “extremely disappointing” and said: “Central and North West London NHS Trust (CNWL) has formulated a public consultation about the centre in such a way as to ensure their preferred result.”
In response CNWL invited the public and campaigners to “listening events” to encourage discussion with service users, clinicians and service managers.
A Save MPC campaigner also spoke at a recent trust board meeting and a trust spokeswoman said: “The Board members listened to their concerns and there was a discussion around how the £2.7m financial gap could be closed, whilst still maintaining the delivery of excellent services, including women’s contraceptive services.”
