Surrey residents are being urged to have their say on the future investment of £500 million to improve the current buildings at Epsom and St Helier hospitals, as well as build a new specialist emergency care hospital on one of the three sites – Epsom, St Helier or Sutton.
The new 21st century hospital facility would bring together six major services for the most unwell patients and births in hospital onto one site in a new state-of-the-art building. This would mean that specialist doctors, nurses and clinical staff would be able to work together to provide round-the-clock specialist care.
All three options would see the majority of services (85%) staying at Epsom Hospital and at St Helier Hospital, with an investment of at least £80 million in the current buildings. Both hospitals would run round the clock, 365 days a year, with urgent treatment centres, inpatient and outpatient services.
The CCGs have set out their preferred option for the new hospital facility to be Sutton Hospital, next to the Royal Marsden specialist cancer hospital although a final decision will not be made until the consultation has closed and views have been considered.
