Local MP invites residents to St Helier Hospital meeting

February 7, 2013 10:44 AM

Local MP Tom Brake is inviting local residents to a public meeting later this month to discuss the future of St Helier Hospital. The meeting will take place on Thursday, 21 February at 7 pm at the Carshalton Boys Sports College, Winchcombe Road. It will provide an opportunity to challenge those behind the recommendation to close the A&E Unit, maternity services and children's ward at the popular local hospital.

Tom said:

"The support for the campaign so far has been overwhelming. But we need to keep up the momentum, as the fight for St Helier is far from over."

"The meeting is an opportunity for all the constituents to come and express their views, opinions and concerns about the future of St Helier. We encourage both those who are already engaged in the campaign, as well as those who would like to get involved, to drop in."

The healthcare review prepared by Better Services Better Value (BSBV) last year suggested that St Helier Hospital should lose A&E and maternity wards. A campaign to save these vital services has been fought ever since, mobilising thousands of local residents to voice their protest against the proposed closures.

If you would like to attend the meeting, please call Tom Brake's constituency office on 020 8255 8155 or email info@tombrake.co.uk
