Update on the Vision for the Future of Leatherhead Hospital

Peter Adams (Director of Adams Consulting Partners)

Peter Adams gave a comprehensive account of a recent feasibility study conducted on the future of Leatherhead Hospital ‘ A Vision for the Future’. The study has taken a year to complete and involved the League of Friends, representatives from local GP Commissioning Services, NHS Surrey, Central Surrey Health, Epsom General Hospital, Surrey County Council Social Services, the Ambulance Service and Surrey Link (representing the patients). The conclusions reached by the study are that there is plenty of scope to expand the existing services and departments at the hospital.

These findings will be presented to the local GP Commissioning Groups who will in future be responsible for the health provision in the district.

The question of the ownership of the hospital site will be monitored by the Hon. Chairman and Officers, and exploration made about the possibility of establishing a Charitable Trust to take ownership of the site.
