Letter by the head of midwifery at the Whittington

May 11, 2010

The head of midwifery and the General Manager of the Women and Children’s Services at the Whittington have written an open letter.

Click here to read it.

It is of course very re-assuring to read.  I have heard rumours that some GP’s have advised women not to choose the Whittington to give birth as it might be closed soon.  Firstly, the Whittington is much safer now than it was just a few weeks ago and Secondly, there’s no chance that anything at the Whittington will close within 9 months. This campaign has always been for the long-term future of the Whittington.

I am still not clear if the North Central London Strategy Plan 2010 – 2014 has been revised or not. In theory it should be changed as it still lists four options under which the 24-hour A&E at the Whittington would be closed, which would very likely affect the maternity services.

I’l try to  find out and report back on this blog.
