Local health bosses at New Cross Hospital have asked for a cap on the number of births at the hospital. As a result the Liberal Democrats launched a campaign and a petition to make NHS chiefs to think again.

Today, the former health minister Norman Lamb, known for promoting parity for mental health in the NHS has said the New Cross Hospital plan is 'concerning' and today added his voice and support to the campaign.

Commenting on Norman Lamb MP's support, local campaigner Rob Quarmby said:

"A former health minister backing our campaign is real progress and I am urging local people to keep signing and keep supporting our campaign.

"It's disgraceful that women could be turned away from our hospitals in their hour of need.

"Together, we can make NHS bosses think again and drop this terrible plan."
