I am writing in response to a comment made in your article 'Hundreds of staff fear for their jobs as hospitals are forces to save £23m' published on Thursday, February 19.

To say that "standards of care are barely reaching acceptable levels as it is" is simply not true.

The comment from Campaign to Save Brent Healthcare Services is unfair to our staff who provide excellent care every day to hundreds of local people.

While we, like many other organisations, have to make savings and become more efficient, I am committed to ensuring that in doing this we will continue to provide the highest standards of care.
