Epsom and St Helier 2020-2030 background
Our passion and aim is to provide the very best of health and care to our patients and communities. It's our mission to provide great care to every patient, every day.
We want to provide high quality healthcare services for the future – well beyond 2020.
We have very committed staff and are achieving some great things, but we face some major challenges – our hospitals are old (they predate antibiotics), and 43% of our buildings are functionally unsuitable to deliver healthcare.
We want to ensure we have the best services locally and to do this we need to make the case for an investment of £300 to £400 million. This will ensure we have local hospitals into the future and will enable our dedicated clinical teams to meet care standards, providing care in buildings which we believe local people deserve.
We have discussed what changes need to be made in the future with clinicians. We want to keep services local and 85% of patients will see no change to where they receive their care – they will be seen in improved facilities.
We want to build a specialist facility for acutely sick patients, where majors A&E, inpatient beds for children, births and complex emergency surgery is delivered on one site. This would ensure we meet and exceed the new quality standards.
