The NHS Surrey Downs, Sutton & Merton CCG’s have launched their latest consultation regarding the opening of a new ‘specialist emergency care unit’ at one of three sites (that’s A&E to us). The clinical commissioning group have set out their preference for this being in Sutton/Belmont, meaning that some services at St Helier Hospital would close, though the CCG assure us that 85% of services would remain. Whether you think that’s ‘Improving Healthcare Together’ is the question…! Many residents will know that this discussion has gone on for some years but once again you are being asked to input your views, with the closing date being 1st April 2020.
You can find our more and complete the questionnaire on the Improving Healthcare Together website but we have also downloaded the summary booklet for easy reference just click on the image below for a pdf version.
