Closure of hospital services – motion to be submitted to council on Monday

Here is the draft version of a motion we are submitting to the Bromley Council meeting on Monday:

This council welcomes the positive and helpful recommendations of the Special Administrator to deal with the financial problems associated with the South London Health Trust in his initial report published on 29th October2012. 

However, this Council is deeply concerned that the proposals to close Orpington Hospital, the Lewisham A&E and Maternity units and to withdraw services from the Beckenham Beacon will be harmful to the standards of health care for people living in Bromley.  

This council calls on the Leader of the Council and the Chief Executive to respond to the consultation by drawing attention to these concerns and to approach the four Members of Parliament representing the Borough to present a united response to the Special Administrator on the recommendations he will finally make to the Secretary of State for Health. 

Proposed by Cllr John Getgood; Seconded by Cllr Kathy Bance
