At The last Merton Park Ward Residents Association, (MPWRA) meeting residents had the opportunity of hearing from Daniel Elkeles and Charlotte Hall, Chief Nurse, about the plans for Epsom & St. Helier Hospital.

St Helier has over the years been rubbished and reviled, yet also adored and cherished but both Daniel and Charlotte painted a fantastic and bright future for the hospital.

Certainly since Daniel's appointment as CEO, positive strides have been made, previous BID's for takeover from other trusts have disappeared, and a long-term estates plan has received support and funding. 

At grass roots level, huge improvements have been made in the quality of care and patient satisfaction has shot up.

At the presentation, Daniel hinted at a significant announcement but could not reveal what.... However he did confirm a multi-million pound facelift would begin to see blocks B and C updated, with new rendering, waterproofing and insulating all part of the ongoing maintenance, suggesting that St. Helier is not about to disappear anytime soon.
