Old Bexley and Sidcup MP James Brokenshire met the Royal College of Nursing's outer south-east London branch to discuss the future of services at Queen Mary's Hospital.
Nurses sought his views on how a sustainable way forward could be secured to protect care for patients and prevent financial problems returning when South London Healthcare Trust is dissolved in October.
The MP indicated he hoped a line could be drawn in the hand and that the hospital could have a brighter future under new ownership.
Mr Brokenshire said: ““I was very keen to get a real sense of the thoughts of the nursing community here in Bexley and in south-east London.
“The RCN plays an important role, as the NHS evolves, in making sure that the voice of the front line continues to be present and taken seriously.”
