Tuesday 11 March 2014 marks another dark day for our NHS under David Cameron’s government. Despite fierce opposition Jeremy Hunt’s controversial hospital closure clause is now law.
The battle to stop clause 119 of the Care bill was lost when Lib Dem MP Paul Burstow pulled his amendment- which would have given local commissioners the final say –in a truly shocking u-turn even by Lib Dem standards.
Don’t let this be the end of it – email or tweet your MP to demand why they backed #Clause119 NOW

Jeremy Hunt could come for your hospital next. The Save Lewisham Hospital campaigners fought the secretary of state and won - the government's now made it easier to fast track hospital closure without any real public consultation. .
