Save Our St Helier Petition

Last year, Tom Brake MP said that he would hand in the latest St Helier Hospital petition when it would have the most impact.

The South West London Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) published a five year strategy in 2014 and an Issues paper in 2015 which seek to address the clinical and financial challenges facing the local NHS. The next step is to agree the detail of how the strategy will be implemented, including the role of each local Hospital and Community provider trust in delivering it. This process is underway and so now, when there is still time for them to take people’s views into account ,is the most appropriate time for the CCG to know the strength of feeling in support of the St Helier Hospital’s A+E and maternity services.

So on Friday 8th January, local Councillor Jean Crossby and Tom Brake MP presented the 25,000 strong petition to Brendan Hudson, Chair of the Sutton CCG.

Even though the petition has been handed in, the campaign won’t be over until the A+E and maternity services are secure.  You can still help the campaign.  Sign up to volunteer here or donate here.

I, the undersigned, call on South London CCGs to keep open St Helier Hospital's A&E department, Maternity ward and Children’s ward. To also develop a plan which has local support, is based on solid evidence and provides desperately needed services in the community.

    I think it would be a very serious error to close Saint Helier. it is an excellent hospital offering good service and coping with patients from a large area. Saint George’s is no where near large enough to cope and the Parking there is abominable. it would cause great upheaval for the residents near Saint George’s. The waiting lists would get longer. The elderly and people with Children would have a very difficult time trying to get there and in an emergency lives could be at risk. The more I think about it the more angry I get at the thought of Saint Helier hospital closing. My husband was diagnosed with cancer in July and when he needed urgent hospitalisation the Royal Marsden didn’t have a bed so he was admitted to Saint Helier. He received the most wonderful treatment and care. I can’t speak highly enough of the staff. I would have found it very hard to have to go to Saint George’s. Why can’t the old Sutton Hospital site be redeveloped?? There are much better options than closing Saint Helier. We NEED a hospital for this very large catchment are.
