Epsom Hospital Update 5th February 2017
With apologies for the very late notice but the Residents' Association only found this out by chance today (5th February):-
Epsom & Ewell Borough Council will be hosting an Open Public meeting on Monday 6th February at Bourne Hall to provide an update on local health matters. Representatives from Surrey Downs Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust will present on the following topics:
• Current Performance and Future Plans
Daniel Elkeles, Chief Executive, Epsom & St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust
• The Local Sustainability & Transformation Plan
James Blythe, Director of Commissioning & Strategy, Surrey Downs CCG
Councillor Liz Frost, Chairman of the Council's Health Liaison Panel, said: "We urge everyone to come along to this public meeting to hear more about the current performance as well as future plans of some of our local health services.
“It is an opportunity for our residents to stay informed and up to date and hear from two of the key health organisations in the area”. The meeting is being held at Bourne Hall on Monday 6th Feb from 7pm-9pm.
St. George's Hospital
Whilst not our "local" hospital, St. George's is the hospital many residents will find themselves going to if they are seriously ill. Many ambulance A&E admissions by-pass Epsom and St Helier and go straight to St George's. It is therefore more than disturbing to see the hospital recently assessed as 'Inadequate' and being placed into Special Measures. Not something that instills confidence!
