Come to the KOSHH public meeting in Epsom to find out what YOU can do to fight for YOUR local major acute hospitals.
Local NHS bosses have a proposal to downgrade BOTH Epsom hospital and St Helier hospital, removing ALL acute services such as A&E, Maternity & Paediatrics, possibly as soon as next year (2020). 5+ years later, they say they would like to provide a SINGLE new “Acute Facility” – not a hospital.
The Clinical Commissioning Groups are talking about going to public consultation ANY DAY now.
If this is allowed, most people would have further to travel in the event of an emergency, the new acute facility (if it is ever built) would have fewer Acute beds than we already have, and it would be staffed by many fewer consultants than we currently have.
We believe that lives would be lost as a direct result of this plan.
FIGHT LIKE YOUR LIFE DEPENDS UPON IT.
BECAUSE IT MIGHT!
