The Secretary of State for Health has now made his decision on the final report by the Trust Special Administrator. The decision is that the Trust will be dissolved by 1 October 2013 and its services managed by new organisations.
Patients should note that all services are running as normal in all of South London Healthcare's hospitals and there will be a carefully managed process so that there is no service disruption during the transition period.

Help Stop the Spread of Norovirus
Norovirus, which causes diarrhoea and vomiting, is now circulating in the local community.
Norovirus is one of the most common causes of highly infectious sickness and diarrhoea (gastroenteritis). It can spread very quickly in schools, hospitals and care homes. Don't give Norovirus a chance.
We need to take action to reduce the risk of Norovirus infection within our hospitals.
Symptoms of a Norovirus infection include nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and, in some cases, a fever, headache, stomach cramps and aching limbs. Symptoms can last for 12 to 60 hours, but most people recover within two days. There is no specific treatment but it is important that people with diarrhoea and vomiting drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration.
The virus is easily spread from person to person therefore individuals should wash their hands thoroughly with soap and water after contact with an affected person or environment.
Stay at home for at least 48 hours after symptoms of Norovirus have stopped to reduce the risk of passing the virus to others.
Please see the NHS website for more information.
