Our hospital battle goes on

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

Last Friday I went back to Barking Hospital to see the Walk in Centre which has just reopened in the new Hospital. It was wonderful to finally see nurses seeing patients in their new brand new surroundings. And it was good to talk to people who had come in for their blood tests.

Before it was relocated to the Barking Hospital site, 30,000 people had been seen by the Walk in Centre since April last year – that just goes to show the demand for health services in the local area.

What a difference it was from the last time I was there just before Christmas! Then I was joined by campaigners, including the Friends of Barking Hospital, standing in the freezing cold demanding that the Hospital be opened.

Getting the Walk in Centre in place is an important milestone in what has turned out to be a year-long campaign. But it’s taken NHS managers nearly a year to approve it. And we’re still fighting for the GP surgery and the maternity wards!

As more people move into the area, demand for more urgent care and maternity services will increase. That’s why we need more health services based in places people can get to easily. And that’s why we need to keep the services we’ve got at King George Hospital.

Everyone who was at my coffee afternoon later that afternoon understood this, including two ladies, in particular. One who was born in the old Barking Hospital in 1945 and the other due to have a baby in May. If only those people who run the NHS would meet local residents and talk to them face to face. Maybe then they would begin to understand!

We already have one of the highest birth rates in the country with more babies being born here than anywhere else in Britain. Barking Hospital alone is expected to manage 670 births every year in the next 3 to 5 years. Yet more top-down reorganisation will be a complete waste of money and will mean less money for the doctors and nurses that we desperately need.

Before Christmas the Government announced the closure of A&E and maternity at King George. This decision is simply wrong. But we did get a commitment that King George won’t close until Queens is given the “all clear” by the Inspectors. That could be another 5 years. I don’t think Queens will ever cope. We can still get the Government to see sense and halt this ridiculous proposed closure which is all being driven by money not need. Our fight goes on.

Recent visits

I’ve visited lots of people in Barking and Dagenham during the last month.

Lifeline’s newest centre in Barking recently opened its doors to the public and it was great to see the work that is being carried out there to support jobseekers back into work.

Lifeline’s Centre offers local residents of Barking a comprehensive employment service including help with updating their CVs, interview techniques, support with application forms, additional training and 1-2-1 support.

I met pupils at the brand new George Carey Church of England Primary School in Barking, which opened in September 2011.

After meeting Headteacher Chris Harrison, I was extremely pleased to see what progress the school is making during its first year.

I also had a guided tour of the Coca-Cola warehouse managed by Howard Tenens in Dagenham, which will service the Olympic Park during London 2012.

I was really impressed by this fantastic operation. It’s great to see a family business in the borough making an essential contribution to the Olympics during 2012.

Hospital specialists informed general practitioners if patients died in hospital.To identify a sample of dying people for whom the provision of end of life care or end of life decision making were relevant considerations, we selected all non sudden deaths, excluding all deaths that occurred “suddenly and totally unexpectedly” as judged by the general practitioner.1 2 24Data collectionThe first part of the registration form surveyed characteristics of all registered patients (age pandora jewellery, sex, underlying cause of death). For patients who had died non suddenly, general practitioners filled in a second part measuring place of death (home, care home (elderly or nursing home), hospital, inpatient palliative care unit) as a structural care component, and the following aspects of care provided in the final three months of life:Involvement of general practitioners, clinical specialists, or informal carers (not, sometimes, or often involved)Presence of a specialist multidisciplinary palliative care service (yes or no).

Divorce rates may be highest in the years after marriage and may decline with time, implying that the annual divorce rate for those in the 20th year of marriage would be lower than those in the first few years of marriage.23 Put differently, the divorce hazard may not be constant over time. If professionals in specific occupations marry at different ages, then a survey at a given time may misclassify occupations as having different divorce rates simply because people in those occupations were sampled at varying lengths of time after marriage. It is therefore important to adjust for the number of years since someone became married in the most recent marriage.After estimating the logistic models, we reported the adjusted prevalence and incidence of divorce by occupation.
