In the final Prime Minister's Questions before Parliamentary recess, Siobhain asked the Prime Minister to intervene and stop the engagement by Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS trust that could see acute services from both Epsom and St Helier Hospitals closed.

The 'engagement' (unable to be termed a consultation) suggests that a new £300-400 million hospital can be built for acutely unwell patients at one of three sites: Epsom, St Helier, or Sutton - despite no suggestion that such funds are available. Similar failed consultations have been run in the past with the Sutton site being the preferred option, wasting over £40 million of taxpayers money in the process.

After 18 years, 5 consultations and an enormous amount of wasted taxpayers money, Siobhain asked the Prime Minister to intervene once and for all.
