The purpose of the meeting was to seek assurances that health services in Sutton Borough were not going to be scaled down and to update the MPs on the review of the BHCH Project.

Both Mr Brake and Mr Burstow are backers of the original Better Healthcare Closer to Home plan for a network of local care hospitals and a critical care hospital in Sutton Borough. Their meeting with Mr Peacock follows the Save Our St Helier march on 25 November 2006 attended by around 2,500 local residents.

Mr Burstow said after their meeting that "the future of healthcare in the borough hangs on this review. What is clear is that NHS bosses have decided that the status quo is not an option. It is vital that everyone concerned for our local NHS demonstrate their support by signing the Save Our St Helier Petition.

Mr Brake also voiced his concerns "The future of St Helier Hospital hangs in the balance. I would urge local people and anyone who is concerned about their local hospital to actively offer their help in collecting petition signatures for our petition. They can do this by logging onto my website www.tombrake.co.uk or the dedicated website www.saveoursthelier.org.uk."

    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.
