Hospital campaigners from Brent, Ealing and Hammersmith and Fulham assembled at a chilly 8.30am today outside the Methodist Central Hall, Westminster in the shadow of Parliament's Victoria Tower. They were protesting against Shaping a Healthier Future plans to close A&Es at Hammersmith, Charing Cross, Ealing and Central Middlesex Hospitals.
Their pleas were ignored just as were their letters, petitions and marches and the Trust went ahead and voted for all four closures.
Campaigners warned that the decision will hit many of the area's most vulnerable residents and could result in life threatening delays for urgent treatment.
