Andy Burnham's visit to Ealing Hospital

IMG_1851.jpgI recently joined Andy Burnham, Shadow Secretary of State for Health on a visit to Ealing Hospital to talk to nurses and NHS staff about their worries and fears over local services suffering from a winter crisis.

Staff at Ealing Hospital are committed, hardworking but are already working overcapacity with limited staff, so the cuts to the local health service will put Ealing Hospital under even more strain during the difficult winter months.

Andy Burnham was vocal in raising his concerns over the implications the cutbacks to London’s NHS services would have on patients and the local community.

Following the announcement by Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt that the A&E at Ealing Hospital would remain open with changes to the ‘size and shape’ of services, there has been a great amount of anxiety amongst many of us in the local community, particularly after the revelation that blue-light ambulances will not be stopping at the ‘new’ Ealing A&E.

Andy Burnham’s visit shows that the fight to save our hospitals has not ended and that we will continue to be vocal about our opposition to the Government’s plans for our A&Es.
