Doctors discuss A&E and maternity closure plans
Protests are expected today as doctors in Sutton meet to decide if they support the closure of some frontline hospital services.
Plans to close A&E and maternity units at both Epsom and St Helier's hospitals were published last week, as part of a review into NHS services across south west London and Epsom.
Epsom Hospital may lose A&E
Report calls for Epsom Hospital to lose A&E and maternity wards
Epsom Hospital is under threat of losing its Accident and Emergency and maternity units if recommendations published today are followed.
The Better Standards Better Value (BSBV) review on services at the hospital has released the draft pre-consultation report.
The report recommends that the hospital becomes an elective care centre with St Helier becoming a local hospital. Both of which would lose the A&E units if the recommendations were followed.
The BSBV is a review of local healthcare services across Epsom and surrounding areas and South West London. It is led by local doctors, nurses and other health workers.
Car smashes through home
Car smashes into couple's bedroom
A couple had a lucky escape after a speeding car was launched into their first-floor bedroom as they slept.
The silver Lexus came around a bend in Bridge Road, Epsom, mounted a parked Audi and flew into the side of the house, Surrey Police said.
The incident happened at 3am yesterday and punched a large hole in the brick house, causing considerable damage to the owner's bedroom and an en-suite bathroom.
The couple escaped unscathed, and three men who were travelling in the Lexus were taken to Epsom Hospital where they were treated for minor injuries.
