On the 5th of June 2017, Paul Scully published a video on his facebook page (link below), where he discusses the site of the former Sutton Hospital, part of which is planned to be the location of a new Secondary School. Mr Scully does not approve of this idea, and he explains why:
- The buildings would be too tall
- The transport links just aren't good enough
But, and this is a very important point, Mr Scully is pushing the idea that:
- Epsom Hospital
- St Helier Hospital AND
- Queen Mary's Hospital for Children...
should be replaced by a new "facility" on the former Sutton Hospital site.
Surely transport links need to be at least as good for a hospital, as they do for a school? Or is Mr Scully not expecting many people to be attending the new medical facility he proposes on this site?
If so, this might explain why he thinks he can build a replacement for two acute hospitals for the cost of £75 million (or £300 million, depending on which day of the week you ask him).
Could it also be that some of the more wealthy residents in the vicinity of the former Sutton Hospital site (note that Sutton Hospital was closed under a Conservative led Government) would not be too keen on a school on their doorstep, but would be very pleased to have an exclusive, small, medical centre, with poor transport links?
You have a big choice to make on Thursday the 8th of June 2017.
Don't let Mr Scully take you for a fool.
