Why Should We Care?

Scrapping A&E, maternity and other services will have a significant effect on residents in Sutton. Response times will be affected as Kingston, St Georges and Croydon A&E take in people from Sutton. Demand for A&E at St Helier has increased significantly in recent years. Travel times will be greatly increased as people fight the traffic around South London to travel further to get to a hospital. You can see a map showing the hospitals affected here.
