Ealing Clinical Commissioning Group held its AGM last night and gave itself a big thank you for its work over the last year. Closing the only Maternity Unit in Ealing was listed as an “achievement”!
So was all the privatisation and outsourcing of Ealing health services.
The audience of about 80 including GPs, health workers and campaigners obviously wasn’t convinced. Most of the questions were critical and an open letter signed by 500 Ealing residents was given to CCG Chair Mohini Parmar. The letter objected to the indefensible closure of Maternity. A similar letter from Southall residents had already been sent in.
Ealing CCG is engaged on cutting and privatising as part of a Government attack on the NHS. We gave out leaflets saying just that!
