The Government kicking the completion of these important works into the next decade is nothing short of shameful.
It is completely unacceptable that the Government has changed its mind and will now not complete the refurbishment of Charing Cross Hospital before the start of the next decade.
Charing Cross is a vital hospital, and the Conservatives wanted to demolish it until just a few years ago. Now they're showing contempt for the thousands of Fulham residents who use Charing Cross by kicking the completion of its floor-by-floor refurbishment into the long grass.
The better part of a decade is simply too long to wait to give Charing Cross the modernisation it needs to continue to provide its essential service. It has the busiest major trauma centre in London and is host of the NHS’s largest biomedical research centre. It's clear that the Conservatives don't value Charing Cross at all, and that our local NHS is not safe in Greg Hands' Hands.
I'm calling on the Government to change course and deliver the refurbishment as soon as possible.

It is shameful that the Government have delayed refurbishing Charing Cross Hospital until 2030 at the earliest. It must be refurbished as soon as possible! Sign the petition below if you agree.
