Future of South London NHS services -Public Meeting Today 10am in Bromley

Mon 26 Nov at 10am, Bromley Court Hotel, Bromley Hill, Bromley, Kent BR1 4JD

Meeting held by Office of the Trust Special Administrator whose recommendations will affect Beckenham in the following ways.

The NHS Trust pulling out of the Beckenham Beacon by terminating the lease, discussions are already underway. What if anything will be put in its place? Residents may have to travel to Princess Royal University Hospital in Farnborough for services previously provided at the Beacon.

A recommendation to merge the Queen Elizabeth Hospital site with Lewisham Healthcare NHS Trust will see Lewisham Hospital cease to have an A&E (this is the closest A&E for many Beckenham residents).

Lewisham Hospital has the closest A&E for many Beckenham residents. If the Minor Injury Unit at the Beacon is also closed the Princess Royal University Hospital in Farnborough will be the closest hospital for urgent care. It is also recommended Orpington Hospital be sold off.

    There is still time to let the Bromley Council leadership know your thoughts on tough choices -consider this when you do. Bromley Councillors basic allowance c. £12,000 whereas Sevenoaks it is £4246 Tonbridge and Malling £5076 Tunbridge Wells £5279
    Millions are being lost on excessive wages not forgotting that the Chief Executive earns £46k more than the PM.
    28 officers earn more than £100,000 whereas average London wage is about £26,000.
    The Council is so far also refusing to impliment a Council report that would reduce the number of Councillors from 60 to 40 also saving a million pounds every 4 years.
