Commenting on the decision by Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt to order the closure of the Maudsley Emergency Clinic, Cllr David Noakes, Liberal Democrat Chair of Southwark’s Health Scrutiny Committee said:
The new name for Southwark Children and Young People’s state-of-the-art development centre has been officially announced. The centre will be known as Sunshine House. The name, exclusively unveiled to guests at the topping out ceremony, is the result of a competition that involved children and young people as well as staff who will work in the centre.
