Health bosses expected to wield the axe on casualty department
Hospital bosses are expected to confirm today the closure of Central Middlesex Hospital’s Accident and Emergency (A&E) unit.
The A&E at the building in Acton Lane, Harlesden, will be closed and the hospital will be reclassified as a local and elective hospital with an urgent care centre.
The recommendations, which come under the Shaping a Healthier Future plans, are set out in a report due to be discussed and finalised at around 4.30pm.
It follows months of protests from local campaigners including two petitions and a march through the streets of Brent.
