Letter that has been sent calling for the specialist palliative care unit to be reprovided in the new hospital December 2020)

In response to our letter and many other letters and questions Barts Health Trust are now going to review their plans for the Margaret Centre and Palliative Care and End-of-life care in the new Whipps Cross hospital. This shows the impact of public pressure & campaigning; there's still a lot for us to do if the Margaret Centre really is to be reprovided.
