Massive Health Cuts Threaten Services at St Helier - Brake

October 23, 2006 1:48 PM

Commenting today on the news that up to 480 jobs and 208 beds could be lost at the Epsom and St Helier University NHS Trust, Tom Brake MP for Carshalton and Wallington in those constituency St Helier Hospital is located said,

"This is very depressing news both for the hard-working and committed staff at St Helier Hospital and for patients.

"The Trust must do everything within its power to minimise staff cuts and to ensure that there are no compulsory redundancies.

"And the Trust must guarantee that there will be no impact on the quality of patient health care.

"This is further evidence of a 'Boom and Bust' approach to funding the NHS. Short-term financial problems must not be allowed to threaten the long-term viability of St Helier Hospital."

    If you are a resident of the Carshalton and Wallington constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.
