Lynne Featherstone MP announces Whittington public meeting in Haringey

Published by Lynne Featherstone on Wednesday, February 13th, 2013 at 10:17 am

Lynne Featherstone MP had today announced a public meeting to discuss the future of the Whittington Hospital.


The meeting will take place on Friday the 1st March, 6pm – 9pm, at Grieg City Academy assembly hall – entrance via Hillfield Avenue.


The MP for Hornsey and Wood Green has arranged the event in her constituency, so local residents have a chance to meet the Whittington Board Members, ask questions and raise their concerns about the Hospital’s reorganisation plans.


From 6pm – 7:30pm, attendees will be able to meet Board members to discuss concerns and queries. The meeting will then commence, followed by open questions.


The Liberal Democrat MP recently secured assurances from the Hospital that no services would be lost without equal or better replacements, and that there would be a programme of public engagement.


Commenting, Lynne Featherstone MP said:


“I have called this meeting, in my constituency, so that residents can find out more about the Hospital’s plans and raise their concerns in a public environment.


“It is such a shame that the Whittington did not engage from the beginning. As they did not do this, the decision making process and reasoning has been unknown and alarm has been caused.


“But, the assurances of no loss of service and public engagement are better late than never. I’m calling this meeting so the Board members can take questions and give residents these assurances directly.


“Over 2000 people have signed my petition against loss of services, and I hope to see as many of them as possible on the 1st.”
