Video: STP Team Haven’t Done Their Homework

The South West London Sustainability and Transformation Plan is calling for the reduction of “Acute Sites” (hospitals) in South West London, from 5, down to 4 or even 3, with Epsom & St Helier hospitals already very high on the list for cuts. On the 18th of January 2017, the South West London Joint Health […]

Lots of new video content here

KOSHH campaigners have been hard at work recently, holding street-stalls, public meetings, leafleting and campaigning, and putting together some great new video content to help get the word out about the threat to our local hospital services, and to the wider NHS at this critical time.   This round-up is intended as a bit of […]

It’s all just a blur

As we have previously highlighted (see links here, here, and here especially) the Epsom & St Helier Trust has produced a document they call their “Estates Review”. The document is riddled with contradictions, some of which we will go into elsewhere. It appears to have been drafted to give the impression of a hospital trust whose buildings are […]

Press: KOSHH in the news, A&E waiting time targets.

The Epsom & St Helier NHS Trust have missed the government target for A&E waiting times every month since August 2015. Until recently, the government target for the percentage of A&E patients to be seen within 4 hours was 98%, but in June 2010, the Con-Dem government relaxed this target to 95%. There are a number […]
