Our commitment to the NHS
The Government announced last July that they plan to shut the A&E at King George Hospital by the middle of 2015.
This goes against their promise of no change at King George until Queen's could cope and its A&E is ready to take extra people.
Waiting times at Queen's and King George's A&Es have shot up since 2010.
At the same time, only 1 in 2 people get an appointment with their GP locally within a week.
GP's have got to be more accessible. For example, they should be open 7 days a week.
We will continue to campaign for better GP services and to keep King George A&E open for all the residents of the borough.
Keeping King George A&E
We will continue to call for King George A&E to be kept open.
Call for improvements at Queen's
We will continue to call for improvements at Queen's Hospital.
Commitment to local walk-in Centres
We back local walk-in centres like the one at Barking Community Hospital in Upney Lane. We have opposed the closure of the walk-in centre in Broad Street, Dagenham.
Better GP Services
We want to see better GP Services open 7 days a week.
Commitment to Barking Hospital
We want to see more services being based at Barking Community Hospital.
