Epsom Hospital Update – November 2016

You may have seen yesterday’s press reports about the future of our local hospitals. The articles suggest that Epsom is one of a group of South London hospitals, of which one is expected to be closed completely. This appears to be based on a report by the independent think tank, the Kings Fund, about its […]

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 […]

Epsom Hospital – March 2014

The Better Services Better Value programme, which was the programme planning to reconfigure local hospital services, and was proposing the downgrade of Epsom Hospital, has been wound up.

Epsom Hospital Update 4th November 2013

You will remember that my Surrey MP colleagues and I carried out a ballot of local GPs in the summer which showed a majority opposed to the proposal by NHS doctors in London to downgrade Epsom Hospital.
