Jane Race, Conservative councillor for College ward on Epsom & Ewell Borough Council and a long-term Epsom Hospital campaigner has submitted her petition seeking to protect local stroke services at Epsom Hospital.
The 5797 signature petition was submitted by Cllr Race on the 29th January Surrey Downs Clinical Commissioning Group which covers the Mole Valley and Epsom & Ewell areas. Local Clinical Commissioning Groups are consulting on the future of stroke services in the county and the petition argues that Epsom's 18 bed unit shoudl be protected.
Cllr Race has insisted that "we keep our high quality services at Epsom' and has pledged to keep the online petition open so that signatures can continue to be added and comments left.
