“During the recent election campaign in Sutton, the number one issue on the doorstep was St Helier Hospital and whether the two Liberal Democrat Members of Parliament would keep their promise – in Paul Burstow’s case, from within Government – to retain all the existing services at St Helier Hospital. This seems to have come to nought. I will do all I can in my position as the local London Assembly member to fight to save services at St Helier and, along with the Guardian’s excellent campaign, get this ridiculous decision reversed.”
