This week, it was revealed in the Sutton Guardian that a planned school for the old Sutton Hospital site won't be built on the Sutton Hospital site. Instead, it is planned for Rose Hill. This seems to be in keeping with the "preferred option" as per the "traingate" leak for the Sutton Hospital site to be used for a new 800-bed hospital, at the expense of Epsom and St Helier Hospitals.

It was also revealed this week that Epsom and St Helier Hospitals have not met infection targets. In 2014-15, there were seven cases of MRSA when the target was zero, and 42 cases of Clostridium Difficile (C-Diff), when the target was no more than 40. KOSHH does not believe that such figures should be used as stick with which to beat the hospitals and, thus, lead to demands for closures. However, it would be good to see figures on infection rates to see if the increase correlates with the use of private cleaning companies rather than NHS staff.
