**NEWS JUST IN** THE GOVERNMENT HAS LOST IT’S APPEAL! WE HAVE WON OUR CAMPAIGN TO Save Lewisham Hospital!
Announcement from Save Lewisham Hospital Campaign:
More to follow, but for now: Yesterday and today the Government had been appealing the decision when we won our Judicial Review back in July 2013. This was when the Government’s decision to close Lewisham Hospital was ruled to be unlawful.
We were confident that the Government would lose their appeal on this decision because they were using emergency legislation in an undemocratic way to close Lewisham Hospital – a GOOD hospital – without any consultation, and without any evidence to justify it.
Today the Government’s appeal has been denied. We have WON our campaign to save Lewisham Hospital.
It’s outrageous and undemocratic that the Government are now planning to change the law to allow them to do exactly the same thing they have been found guilty of in other NHS Trusts across the UK. If they pass that legislation in the House of Commons, the whole of the NHS will be at risk.
The Save Lewisham Hospital campaign is now committed to helping other campaigns to fight this taking place across our NHS.
