“Don’t close our Children’s Ward!”

Around 80 angry protesters gathered outside Greenford Town Hall as the Ealing CCG decided to close the Charlie Chaplin Children’s Ward which means that children will no longer be accepted at Ealing A&E. You can read here what the consequences of the closure will be for sick or injured children in Ealing, according to an experienced Consultant Paediatrician.

The crowd was addressed by Greenford councillor Aysha Raza and newly re-elected GLA member Onkar Sahota as well as health campaigners.

If you oppose the closure but were unable to join our protest, you can still write to your GP and/or local councilloers. You will find template letters here.
