Why no hospitals consultation meeting in Beckenham

We have sent the following eamail to the consultants.   By not having a meeting locally, the author of the report has confirmed that he has no idea of the relationship between the local population and local health services: 

Dear Sirs,

I will send a lengthy objection to these proposals at a later date. 

However, I want to initially send my strong objections to the location of the consultation meetings.   The proposals regarding Lewisham Hospital and the Beckenham Beacon will have a major impact on health provision in the north west area of Bromley Borough – largely Beckenham, Clock House and Penge.  The nearest consultation meeting to us is in Bromley.   This decision makes it very difficult for people living here to attend a meeting regarding the proposals.  A further meeting needs to be arranged or the consultation will be compromised. 

I look forward to your response.

    The consultation already was ‘compromised’ – i) because the use of the word ‘consultation’ always tends to be an abuse of the English language by the relevant authority, these days, and ii) is reading the written report likely to convince me of its basic message, namely that a temporary young local official concludes that everyone else has been farting about and haemorraging public money (apart from him), thereby indicating the need for severe economies?
