The Dame says,
"Cllr Ian Henderson has fought like a Highlander to save the Sutton estate and has done an amazing job fighting those rogues trying turn a housing association into a property developer.
The Royal Brompton Hospital must be relieved to see that Ian has taken up the vital cause of saving the Royal Brompton. We should all sign his petition"
The Royal Brompton Hospital is a world-renowned hospital and an integral part of the famed science/health Chelsea hub.
The NHS Executive has decided to stop commissioning children’s heart services from the Royal Brompton, despite acknowledging its history of providing safe and exceptional care in this area. The hospital has now given up on retaining the Fulham Road site and is planning to transfer all of its services to a site at St Thomas Hospital, funded by selling off its very valuable site. We believe this to be a retrograde step which will seriously damage the excellent services for which the Brompton is well known.
Two trusts - Imperial Healthcare (which runs St Mary’s, Charing Cross and Hammersmith hospitals), and the Chelsea and Westminster - are pursuing an alternative plan. This aims to keep all Brompton services in North West London, but split them over several sites.
Either of the proposed plans would begin to unravel the integrated and highly successful medical facilities now available along the Fulham Road and end any prospect of retaining a world-leading science/health hub in Chelsea.
