WHITTINGTON DEBATE: Serious illness can strike at any hour

AS A carer, I attended, with my blind, diabetic husband - who has regular hypoglycemic attacks - the public meeting about the Whittington A&E.
Part of the plan to replace it would involve a GP surgery operating from 8am to 8pm. Whoever thought of this ludicrous and disgraceful scheme? Illness does not run from 8am to 8pm, especially in cases of diabetes which are permanent, progressive and terminal.
Without our fantastic NHS my husband would not be alive today. His awful disease was discovered too late and he did not drink or smoke, nor is he overweight.
Why close a facility that provides a service for all, rich or poor, regardless of background? Do developers want the land? Or have previous Labour and Conservative governments been lying to us when they said the NHS was safe in their hands?
