Mr Evennett met the Tim Higginson, Chief Executive of Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust, to discuss concerns raised by constituents about the hospital and their plans for improvement.

Mr Evennett commented: “I have raised concerns about Queen Elizabeth hospital on a number of occasions, including patient care, cancellation of appointments, and wait times. I have sought reassurances that these issues are being addressed and I look forward to receiving information on the latest CQC report in due course.”

“I had a good meeting with Mr Higginson today in which we discussed some of the hospital’s innovative plans going forward, such as upgrades to the infrastructure and a new Skills Academy. I will continue to hold the Trust to account and I look forward to seeing the improvements patients deserve.”
