Possible Overload on Croydon University Hospital

650,000 extra people may have to reply on Croydon,

Kingston amd St. George’s Hospitals

if Epsom and St Helier Trust decides to close and demolish Epsom, Queen Mary’s Children’s & St Helier Hospitals.

Their plans will be officially announced in June 2016, when the Trust will present their “Strategic Outline Case”, Daniel Elkeles, Epsom & St Helier Trust Chief Executive, told a Public Meeting on 19  March.

“Any new hospital building in SW London will be blocked by Government”
(said Jeremy Hunt, Health Secretary; endorsed by Chris Grayling MP, Leader of the House)

Thanks to the Save St Helier Hospital Campaign for informing the Croydon Assembly meeting on 31 March.

The possible impact should be noted by Croydon’s:

  • Health & Well-bring Board which meets on 13 April
  • Health, Social Care & Housing Scrutiny Sub-Committee which is meeting on  10 May

with a view to timetabling in examining the plans and their implications when they are published.
