Four A&E units in west London recommended to close

Hammersmith, Ealing, Central Middlesex and Charing Cross hospitals will all have their A&E departments replaced by urgent care centres if the proposal is approved.

It is argued that patients will get better care in bigger specialist hospitals but campaigners have reacted with anger saying their local medical services are under threat.
