Patients launch campaign to save Homerton path lab
Patients have launched a petition to protect Homerton Hospital's highly rated pathology lab from possible privatization.
The hospital trust and hired business consultants are currently reviewing plans for the lab which analyses patients' urinie and blood samples to ensure they get an accurate diagnoses and timely treatment.
Campaigners are concerned the lab, previously earmarked for expansion, may now be outsourced or moved out of the borough.
Consultants were brought in to the review the lab's future when plans to expand the facility collapsed after the firm hired to the build the new lab went bust.
You can also sign a paper copy of the petition at reception at Healthwatch/Hackney CVS offices.
