Andrew Lansley honours election pledge to scrap NHS London plans to downgrade Mayday
21/05/2010 17:10:00

During the election campaign, Andrew Lansley visited Mayday and promised to scrap NHS London's review of hospital services in south west London, which would have involved downgrading Mayday.

Today he has honoured that promise (and indeed put an end to all top down reconfigurations of the NHS), making it clear that any changes must have support from GP commissioners and have regard to the views of patients and local authorities. In other words, the range of services at Mayday is now in our and our GPs' hands. Hopefully this will open the way to having a hyper-acute stroke unit at Mayday.

Commenting on my blog

I welcome readers' comments on my blog. Unfortunately, sometimes people go too far and use blog sites to post comments which are abusive or defamatory to third parties. For this reason, your comments, posted using the form on this page, don't appear until they have been moderated, to make sure that they don't cross that line.

My policy is that I will always let comments appear from people who disagree with me, in a spirit of promoting reasoned debate. However, I will not allow comments to be posted which are defamatory to someone else, or which are racist, sexist, homophobic or otherwise likely to fail a 'public decency' test.

Consequently, there may be some hours delay after you post your comment until it appears on the public pages.
