Comparing the options for the site of a new specialist emergency care hospital
We have looked at where the new specialist emergency care hospital could be located to allow us to keep these services within Surrey Downs, Sutton and Merton.
We applied the following three tests.
- The site would keep major hospital services within Surrey Downs, Sutton and Merton.
- We would have the right number of skilled and specialist staff to deliver healthcare services in the long-term.
- The site must be big enough for the specialist emergency care hospital services.
There are three possible locations for where we could bring together these six core (major) services in a specialist emergency care hospital. This could be at Epsom St Helier or Sutton hospital. Take a look at the outline diagrams for the three site options.
