Today at my advice surgery I met with some constituents who are members of people powered campaign group 38 Degrees and include current and former NHS workers.
Today I joined parents and staff at Lewisham NHS Trust's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) to launch a parents' library, parents' handbook and a 'then and now' picture board called 'The Wall of Hope'.
Bad weather is always going to have an impact on hospitals, so on January 8th I went to Lewisham Hospital to see Tim Higginson, the Chief Executive.
I recently officially opened the Waldron Health Centre on Amersham Vale, New Cross. I toured the building and met staff and patients before taking part in a discussion with staff and 'cutting the ribbon'.
The response rate was 10% and the majority of respondents gave a rating of between 7 and 10 out of 10. On average those who responded to the survey rated the healthcare they had received as 7.5 out of 10.
We welcome the decision to remove the threat that has been hanging over services at Lewisham Hospital.
Lewisham Council has been awarded financial support from the Government's Community Energy Efficiency Fund to help pensioners and vulnerable households keep warm during winter. The Council was awarded £40,000 to help with their Energy Action Zone project.
