Bill Howe will be missed

I am sad to report that Bill Howe has recently died. Bill was a great campaigner, not only for the Save King George A&E campaign, but other local causes too.

His contribution to the campaign to keep open our A&E will be missed.

Below is a photo from September 2013 when Bill organised a deputation to the council on King George Hospital. Bill is standing at the back and in the middle of the picture.

Statement by Cllr Jas Athwal & Keith Prince AM in support of 18th March Rally and march

"It is unfair that King George Hospital A&E is being planned to close in 2019. Since the closure plan was passed in 2011 the population of North East London has grown and is set to grow further still. Other parts of the country such as Durham and Luton have been given more resources to improve their A&E departments, we are only asking that resources not be taken away from our area.

When the King George A&E closure plan was passed in 2011 we were given a guarantee that King George A&E would not close until Queens was of a high standard. This is not the case.

A good turn out on the 18th March is vital, if we can match the 6000 that turned out to help Grantham's A&E we might get on the TV news and broadcast to thousands our request to meet Mr Hunt, the Secretary of State for Health to review the closure decision"
