Why are you spending in the region of £500 million of public money to change our hospitals?

In order to secure the future of both Epsom and St Helier hospitals, we need make changes and this costs money. The hospitals were built many years ago, many buildings are not fit for purpose and they are no longer organised in the right way for the number of patients the hospitals treat. Having explored a number of options, we feel that investing this money into our hospitals is the best way to secure the future of our two hospitals and the services they provide for generations to come.
