Consultation on £500m Epsom St Helier proposals

On, Wednesday 8 January 2020, we launched a public consultation on three potential options for the location of a brand-new specialist emergency care hospital – on the Epsom, St Helier or Sutton hospital sites.

This follows the decision on Monday, 6 January 2020, that health leaders from NHS Surrey Downs, Sutton and Merton Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) to launch this public consultation on the three potential options. Sutton was agreed by the CCGs as a preferred option for the consultation, but health leaders were clear that all three options could be delivered by the NHS.

We are now urging people to give us their views on our proposals during this public consultation which launched on Wednesday 8 January and will close on Wednesday 1 April 2020. No decisions will be made on the future of Epsom and St Helier hospitals until the summer when the CCGs will consider the views of local people and all the clinical and financial evidence.

We would be grateful for your support in actively encouraging your local communities, colleagues and staff to give us their views.

As well as responding online directly to the consultation questionnaire, people can get involved through a whole range of different ways designed to make sure the NHS hears as many voices, from as many communities as possible, including those who find it difficult to go to meetings or respond in writing. We have briefly outlined some of the ways people can get involved at the end of this email, including details of nine listening events.

A copy of the questionnaire, the summary and full consultation documents and more detail about events and consultation activity can all be found on our website at https://improvinghealthcaretogether.org.uk/consultation/
