A&E unit could go at St Helier

10th May 2012

The panel of 60 local people, managers and GPs also considered whether to make cuts at Croydon, Kingston or St George's Hospitals, though their recommendations are not binding and are now subject to a 12-week public consultation. St Helier’s chief executive Matthew Hopkins said he was disappointed by the recommendation.
