The BSBV Botch Up!

I have written to Surrey Downs CCG board today  setting out the evidence from the Birthplace study which confirms that 40% of first time mothers need transfer from a Midwife stand alone unit. I have also corrected many of the misleading or insufficient answers the board gave to the written questions from the public.

I have also given some examples of sick children who really needed a hospital close at hand and elderly patients whose relatives cannot visit them when they are too far away.

Let's hope the Board listen to the reasons we need to keep our services at Epsom and avoid an expensive consultation which wouldn't be needed if proper evidence about Epsom and surrounding areas had been collected first.
