Agenda and how to attend
Introduction to the Public Forum and the Healthier Greenwich Partnership
Discussion on proposals for changes to services provided at Eltham Community Hospital
General discussion where you can ask senior representatives of Healthier Greenwich Partnership questions or raise any issues
Healthier Greenwich Partnership would like to hear from you about proposed changes to the services currently provided at Eltham Community Hospital. The proposals would see the intermediate care beds currently provided by Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust at Eltham Hospital move to be with similar beds at Meadow View ward, Queen Mary’s Hospital. This would enable us to develop a new Community Diagnostic Centre at Eltham Community Hospital which will have significant benefits for the residents of Greenwich and beyond. The proposed centre, would provide up to 64,339 additional scans and 27,418 blood tests per year by increasing existing capacity for ultrasound scans, blood tests and X-rays and creating new capacity for CT scans, MRI scans, respiratory and cardiac diagnostics. It will help to reduce waiting times to meet current demand and provide an opportunity for further expansion to meet future demand. There are several ways you can have your say:
You can attend in person at the Woolwich Town Hall or join the meeting online using Zoom.
