Bridget Fox and team say Save Finsbury Health CentreLocal Liberal Democrat councillors have demanded that the Labour Health Minister step in and review NHS Islington´s decision to sell-off the trailblazer Finsbury Health Centre and spread the services it provides across the borough.

Marisha Ray, one of the local Lib Dem councillors for Finsbury Health Centre, and Vice Chair of the Council’s Health & Wellbeing Committee, comments:
“It is cruel irony just as the Labour government is pushing polyclinics as the way forward for the health service in London, that Finsbury Health Centre, which was a polyclinic from the day it opened its doors in 1938 is being forced to close down.”

Lib Dem Parliamentary Candidate for Islington South & Finsbury, Bridget Fox, added:
“Local people have reacted with horror to the threatened closure of Finsbury Health Centre. Instead of threatening Finsbury Health Centre, Labour Ministers must change their mind and save it.”

In Islington South & Finsbury

Bar chart: it's Lib Dem or Labour here

The Conservatives, Greens and UKIP can't win in Islington South. Voting for them will just help Labour to win again. Only the Lib Dems can beat Labour in our area.
