High Court quashes decision by Jeremy Hunt to close Lewisham Hospital

Today a High Court judge has quashed a government decision to cut services at Lewisham Hospital in south-east London. Mr Justice Silber ruled on two legal challenges brought by the London Borough of Lewisham and the Save Lewisham Hospital Campaign.

In January, Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt told MPs accident and emergency and maternity services at the hospital would be downgraded. Campaigners argued the move was unlawful. Click to read the full statement from the Barristers engaged by the Save Lewisham Hospital  Campaign and Lewisham Council.
