Given that the JCPCT has now resolved to close four Accident and Emergency units, is he disappointed that the views of local GPs, clinicians, 10,000 residents who marched against the proposals and 100,000 people who signed the petition against the proposals, in addition to his own representations have been ignored?

I raised concerns on behalf of the cross-party delegation that I met on this matter, which you led, and received assurances from the NHS in North West London on the issues that were raised.

I understand that the proposals have now been given local approval. I would wish to see the proposals implemented in such a way that they do not have a negative impact on health inequalities, and that vulnerable groups are not disproportionately disadvantaged.
