The Ham&High is proud to put its weight behind the campaign to save the accident and emergency unit at the Whittington Hospital. People in the vicinity, and many of the 80,000 patients who avail of the emergency service every year, are perplexed and baffled by the proposals, which take little account of the needs of the community.

Days after we had raised concerns about the Royal Free's ability to cope with the anticipated added burden if the Whittington unit goes, the Hampstead hospital was forced to close its doors to many patients. That said a lot about the lack of strategic thinking behind the proposals. Ordinary people pay for the NHS, and this is one clear case where their voice must be heard, and loudly.
