The Improving Healthcare Together programme has now moved into its implementation phase following the approval of the proposals at the IHT Committees in Common meeting held 3 July 2020. The Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust is responsible for implementing the agreed proposals and recommendations set out in the Decision Making Business Case.
Read the full press release, including details of the approved option, here.
In September 2019, the Improving Healthcare Together programme was allocated £500 million to improve the current buildings at Epsom and St Helier hospitals as well as build a new specialist emergency care hospital on one of the three sites – Epsom, St Helier or Sutton. The new 21st century facility will bring together six services for the most unwell patients, as well as births in hospital.
The Improving Healthcare Together 2020-2030 programme was led by experienced GPs from NHS Surrey Heartlands, Sutton and Merton Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) who are responsible for planning care for patients and communities.
We want to make sure the very best quality of care is available to our patients and communities, and that it is sustainable into the future from buildings which are fit for purpose.
