Committees in Common – 6 January 2020

An Improving Healthcare Together Committee in Common meeting was held on 6th January 2020, from 11:00 – 13:00, in the Main Hall, at Bourne Hall, Spring Street, Ewell, Surrey, KT17 1UF.

At this meeting, the Committees in Common approved the Pre-Consultation Business Case (PCBC) and agreed to proceed to a 12 week consultation on the proposals and the three options for change as set out in the PCBC.

Under the proposals:

  • the majority of services would stay at Epsom and St Helier hospitals in refurbished buildings, with both hospitals running 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, with urgent treatment centres at each hospital, and
  • we would bring together six core (major) services, for the most unwell patients, those who need more specialist care, and births in hospital, onto one site in new state-of-the-art buildings. This would mean that specialist doctors, nurses and clinical staff would be able to work together to provide round-the-clock specialist care. These services could be located at Epsom Hospital, St Helier Hospital or Sutton Hospital, but our preferred option is Sutton Hospital.
