Epsom Hospital Update 8th July 2013

GPs in Epsom and Ewell, Mole Valley, Reigate and Banstead and Elmbridge have voted overwhelmingly against the Better Services Better Value proposals to remove acute services from Epsom Hospital.

Epsom Hospital Update 7th May 2013

I am writing to let you know that the options for the future of local hospitals have now been published by the Better Services Better Value team, the people who are leading the drive to reorganise services in SW London.

Epsom Hospital Update April 2013

I am writing to give you an update on what has been happening with Epsom Hospital.

As you may remember, the Better Services Better Value team delayed its decision until the summer after all the challenges to their work that we generated a couple of months ago.

Since then there has been a concerted effort by the […]

Epsom Hospital – decision delayed until early summer

The latest news on the future of Epsom Hospital is that any decisions about its future have been delayed until the early summer. This followed intense pressure on the Better Services Better Value team over the shortcomings of the review process.

What happens next will depend heavily on what our local GPs decide to do. From […]

Epsom Hospital

A big thank you to all of the people who attended the public meeting at Blenheim High School about the future of Epsom Hospital on February 7th. More than 500 people attended, and we had so many that not everyone could get in. My apologies to those who could not, but at the very least […]
