St Helier Hospital in a better shape financially

October 16, 2008 4:08 PM

A report from the Audit Commission released two weeks ago revealed that the Epsom and St. Helier NHS Trust which runs St. Helier Hospital is in a better shape financially in 2007-2008 than in 2006-2007.

'This is really good news for all the people who have fought to save St Helier Hospital in recent years' commented local MP for Carshalton and Wallington, Tom Brake.

According to the Audit Commission local evaluation, in 2006-2007, Epsom and St Helier University Hospital NHS Trust was below the minimum requirements with an inadequate performance. But in 2007-2008, the Epsom and St Helier Trust has improved the overall score from 1 to 2 on a 4 level scale. The Trust has reached an "adequate performance".

'Things are getting better for St Helier' commented Tom Brake MP. 'Of course, the financial situation is far from being perfect, but the trend is in the right direction. The Epsom and St Helier Trust must continue to improve its financial performance and work with NHS London to deliver the major re-build that St Helier Hospital is crying out for'.
