Whipps Cross Hospital Redevelopment
- online discussion meeting No. 2: Tuesday 2nd March

This recording of the second meeting in the series was made from the live stream, and due to an incorrect adjustment only part of the picture has come out. However the sound is very clear. For the third and last meeting in the series we hope to have mastered the art of recording a live stream! "The points made by previous attendees applied to today's presentation - no dialogue and questions carefully selected." (Adrian Stannard).

It is interesting to compare the questions chosen for answering, and the answers provided, with the full list of questions asked in the "Chat" section. Full list kindly provided by Geoffrey Wolfson.

The fourth of 5 NHS awareness films made for the sell out NHS "In Stitches" comedy show at the Hackney Empire on 28th March 2015

This very short video gives us an idea of how much is lost when a hospital no longer offers a "Blue Light" Accident and Emergency Department, which has been proposed for the new Whipps Cross Hospital.

Inner NE Lon. Joint Overview & Scrutiny Com. meeting 2/11/20

Norma's statement and the discussion arising is between 9 minutes 40 seconds and 27 minutes 30 seconds into the recording.

Outer NE Lon. Joint Health Overview Scrutiny Com. meeting 15/11/20

Ann – from our campaign – makes a 3 minute statement about the bed cuts being proposed in the new Whipps Cross hospital. And Julie, who worked at the Margaret Centre & spoke at one of our meetings, makes a statement about the loss for us all if the Margaret Centre is not reprovided in the new hospital. Both of these issues are vital and the councillors need to “scrutinise” the issues and see that our speakers have the community support. Ann's statement begins 1 hour 19 minutes into the meeting and Julie's begins 1 hour 22 minutes and 40 seconds into the meeting.

Mary Burnett's many days spent scrutinising lack of evidence

This video does much to explain our concerns about the modelling used to justify bed reduction. It may be a bit too detailed for some people but illustrates the quality of the research undertaken by our members and makes it clear that that we're not just well meaning scaremongers but have looked at the so-called evidence in detail.
