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.

    St Helier provides a high quality service for A&E and Maternity and it would be a very poor decision to close or reduce these services. If the recent busy winter weeks has proved anything it is that we should certainly not be looking to close A&E Departments. I would in fact point out that St Helier was recognised locally to have managed extremely well dealing to with the unprecedented numbers in early January. It is unrealistic to expect that community based services could ever replace the need for the St Helier A&E / Maternity or that other hospitals in area could take the added numbers. Such suggestions are often not evidence based and disingenuous. St Helier is a valuable resource to the area it serves and must be protected as such.

    We need better local Hospitals with A&E. Closures are absolutely not acceptable.

    I was born here and it would be a crime if this hospital was to close.
