This edition brings concerns and campaign news on our Hospital and Health Services generally. Ealing Hospital is still under threat. Ironically, both Ealing and Charing Cross Hospitals are vulnerable because they are solvent. Unlike many, they do not carry enormous PFI (Private Finance Initiative) debts. Therefore, their closure and land sale would offer huge cash rewards for North West London NHS.
The new NHS “Sustain and Transformation Plans” are also explained. These surprisingly promise to both reduce annual health and social care services’ spending and improve these services. The closure and site sale of West Ealing BHS is highlighted. We include an article on a historic children’s home, local sport options and the new High School. Also news on allotments, West Ealing’s Neighbourhood Plan, the local Barbershop Choir and cultural events in Ealing.
Have you noticed a rise in fly tipping since the introduction of wheelie bins? Please get in touch with news on this or any other Ealing issue.
