BOSSES at Whittington Hospital stormed out of a board meeting after NHS campaigners delivered a petition containing 3,700 signatures.
The petition, printed on dozens of sheets of paper and presented to the board, raised a range of concerns about creeping privatisation, policy decisions – including the latest A&E shake-up at the Archway hospital – and the threat of cuts to frontline services.
It was organised by north London branch of the Revolutionary Communist Group, which says it works with the Defend Whittington Hospital Coalition campaign group in monitoring the NHS trust.
