The SE London health consultation has been released, you can read it all here.
Apart from the children’s’ television style design and the Janet and John language the most galling thing about this consultation is that it basically presents the plans for Greenwich, Bexley and Bromley’s hospitals as a done deal. The three different options are all just tweaks in service at Lewisham Hospital.
While there are some interesting and/or useful ideas in the document they are clearly the little bit of sugar sat on top of a big spoonful of very bitter medicine. The crayon graphics and condescending language don’t hide the fact that this document is all about cuts, cuts, cuts.
A picture of health? Don’t make me laugh!
