Event Description

At a meeting of the management of the Whittington Hospital on the 23rd January it was revealed that they plan to sell off a significant part of the site and make huge cuts to jobs and services. The proposals include

  • Buildings north of the service road, by the old entrance to the A and E. All will be demolished except the listed building(s) which will be sold
  • Staff accommodation which is now included in the above plan, will be demolished and the land sold off
  • 570 staff  jobs to go – administrative and nursing
  • Reduction of beds from over 300 to 177
  • Capping of births to 4,000
  • Reduction of specialist treatments at the Hospital

The management say we don’t need hospital care. They say that care in the community is better. We say we need BOTH.

No to the sell-off and no to the cuts!

There will be a public meeting on the 12th February, 7.30pm,  Archway Methodist Hall, Archway Close (in Archway Roundabout)
