NHS plans would see the community hospital close completely and blood testing facilities be moved to Loughton.
With King Georges Hospital in Goodmayes alos under threat of closure, the entire Borough of Redbridge could be left without a fully working hospital.
The Wanstead Society has joined forces with the Counties Residents Association to campaign, as one, for the protection of all our NHS facilities. Many elderly and disabled residents use Wanstead Hospital and should it close, they would be forced to travel to Loughton. In addition, the closure of the facility would result in a greater increase in traffic congestion as residents are forced to make a longer journey.
The Wanstead Society and Counties Residents Association urge any member to write to their MP, Councillor or the newspapers and spread the word.
Our community hospital is under threat – lets fight to keep it!
