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:
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.
