The East London Health & Care Partnership (ELHCP) has issued their latest statement today regarding the plans for the future of urgent and emergency care services at King George Hospital.
The statement talks about the need to review our plans in light of the challenges we now face since the original decision was made in 2011 to run an urgent care centre from the hospital, such as an increasing and ageing population, and ever-increasing demand on NHS services.

Matthew Hopkins, our Chief Executive has added: “I’m pleased we now have the opportunity to work with our clinicians, our wider staff groups, patients and partners to look at the best way of delivering urgent and emergency care to local people.”
We will continue to keep you updated.
