Epsom Hospital Update June 2018

Dear constituent

Epsom Hospital Update

The Chief Executive continues to argue for a new build hospital on the Sutton Hospital site, with a lot of services integrated with the Royal Marsden next door. His plans would leave outpatient services and planned care, like that provided by the Orthopaedic Centre at Epsom, but would transfer emergency services to Sutton.

Epsom Hospital Update

Firstly, you may have seen just before Christmas that the local NHS Clinical Commissioning Group has run into financial difficulties because of work pressures in the NHS. In total it expects to have a deficit this year which amounts to about 3% of its total budget.

This situation probably sounds pretty familiar – we have seen […]
