From The Socialist newspaper, 27 April 2011

Stop the Connaught closure

Bob Severn and a Whipps Cross worker

The Con-Dem government claims that no frontline NHS services will be cut. But the Connaught day hospital, at Whipps Cross general hospital in north east London, is threatened with closure.

The day hospital provides specialist care to the elderly - how much more frontline can you get?

The axing of the day centre would be on top of a ward closure, and two wards being 'renovated' so that they now have significantly less beds.

Maybe we should not worry. We have been told by the trust that the service is not being axed, it is being 're-provided'. That gives little assurance to day hospital staff and patients.
