Lewisham Hospital further Question to Lewisham Council



Question asked by:  Mr Woolford

Member to reply:       Councillor Best

Question

The Mayor stated at the public hospital meeting, that the challenge would all be about the detail.

Can the Council confirm that it will include the rise of poverty faced by local residents and the impact on the health of the poor, which is on the increase in the Borough, and the very real Health issues this raises.  Will the Council also include the  huge population increase in the borough, which is set to rapidly increase with Convoy Wharf and Surrey Canal Road, and the fact most residents will be young and need Maternity services, which has not been taken into account in these proposals.

Reply

I can confirm that the Council will be producing a detailed response to the Trust Special Administrator recommendations and will indeed be looking at the potential impact of these proposals on our local community needs.
