The situation with the waiting times at QEQM and the WHH Hospitals is both worrying and disturbing and reminiscent of the problems back in the early 2000’s. we should not be again suffering from hospitals in east Kent unable to cope. I also read with interest comments from EKHUFT that the closure of all acute services at the K&C. and the transfer of patients to the William Harvey and QEQM has had no effect on the crisis in their A&E’s. I cannot believe that the trust thinks that we would in any way believe this outrageous propaganda. Even if the extra patients suffering acute stroke, cardiac, or repertory episodes amount to only thirty extra patients a day at the WHH or QEQM, because of the closure of K&C how could you possibly say this has no effect on these hospitals !
