Ealing Town Hall will host a debate tonight about the future of local hospital services.

The debate will cover the closure of Ealing, Hammersmith, Charing Cross and Central Middlesex  accident and emergency departments and follows the successful march on 15th September through Ealing which was attended by thousands of local residents.

It will be chaired by Victoria Macdonald, Channel 4's health and social care correspondent. The event will start at 7pm. It has been designed to allow the maximum opportunity for questions from the public.

Local London Assembly Member Dr Onkar Sahota will be there along with representatives from NHS North West London and other members of the Save Our Hospital Ealing (SOHE) campaign.
Dr Sahota said:
“We are facing unprecedented cuts to the provision of our health care in north-west London. These cuts will affect us all and will put a tremendous amount of pressure on the remaining A&E departments, which are already stretched.

“Tonight we are debating the future of our hospital with representatives from NHS North West London. The march two week’s ago was a clear demonstration of the strength of feeling of local residents. By working together we will show the Prime Minister, the Health Secretary and NHS North West London that we need our local hospitals and we are prepared to fight for them.

“Together, we must preserve and protect the NHS for our future.”
