Epsom Hospital is under threat of losing its Accident and Emergency and maternity units, if recommendations published today are followed.
A review by 'Better Services Better Value' has drawn up three options for the hospital.
The preferred option would see Epsom hospital becoming an 'elective care centre' with St Helier becoming a local hospital. The hospital released a statement:
"On behalf of our patients, staff, volunteers and local residents, I am disappointed with this news and recognise that it will be very unsettling for many people around us...."
"However, it is extremely important to note that these are only recommendations and that no decisions have been made at this stage."
