Romford hospital invites you to Q&A on major health probe
Anyone with an interest in the future of healthcare in Havering should put September 13 in their diaries.
A meeting on the Care Quality Commission’s (CQC) major investigation into services at Queen’s Hospital, in Rom Valley Way, Romford, and King George Hospital, in Goodmayes, will be held by Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Trust.
The CQC has been examining whether the trust is protecting patients - particularly those in maternity and A&E - from “unsafe care”.
It follows ”serious concerns” raised by the government watchdog.
There is also a presentation on the review by the Independent Recongiguration Panel (IRP) which looked into proposed changes to King George – including shutting the A&E and maternity units.

A spokesman for the trust said: “A Question Time session is being held so that people can put any questions they like to the trust board, and can be sure of an honest and frank answer.
