WHITTINGTON PROTEST: Thank God the A&E was so close

I wish to add my protest against the impending closure of the A&E at the Whittington Hospital. I do so as a father of a daughter who has been rushed to the A&E three times with very severe asthma and if it had not been for the proximity of that A&E on one occasion some years ago, she would have died - they told us she had five minutes life left.

Last Christmas Eve she was rushed there again and thank God the A&E in all its proximity and efficiency was so close.

To be taken to the Royal Free or the UCH Accident and Emergency units would have been too long for her and I am pleading that this A&E is not closed. There are those living in Muswell Hill and Crouch End who need the Whittington and its nearness.

Please can the policy makers change their minds and let's keep the Whittington A&E.
