Olympic protest as South London Healthcare trust forced into administration

Queen Elizabeth hospital (QEH) in Woolwich is one of three hospitals in the South London Healthcare Trust that has been sent into administration due to massive Private Finance Initiative (PFI) repayment charges.

But QEH is also in the middle of the Olympics - all around the hospital are temporary constructions ready for the shooting competitions.

While the eyes of the world are on the Games, local campaigners will be protesting at the threats to the hospital.

They are demanding that all the hospitals remain open with no cuts and that the PFI deals are cancelled.
