Community Hospital Review
At the CDRA Residents’ Meeting in April we heard about the review of NHS community hospital services by Surrey Downs Clinical Commissioning Group. This has examined inpatient and outpatient services across Cobham, Dorking, Molesey, Leatherhead and the New Epsom and Ewell Community Hospitals.
A draft report has been published with a number of recommendations. The report also identifies some options for further investigation. These involve choices about which community hospitals remain open and which services are provided at each site. Two of the four options that have been short listed for consideration would involve transferring services from Molesey Community Hospital to Cobham Cottage Hospital.
We are expecting further consultation when the options for re-configuring the services are considered after the draft report is finalised. There have already been some public workshops in the affected areas and the CDRA was represented at one of these.
If you would like to know more about the recommendations and options then go to community hospital review.
Rugby World Cup and Cobham Rugby Club
If you missed our Residents’ Meeting last autumn then you missed a very interesting short talk which we had as a lead in to Cobham Rugby Club hosting the Namibian and Italian Teams for the 2015 Rugby World Cup. Our speaker was Stephen Heard, Chairman of Cobham Rugby Club. You can read a copy of his talk by clicking 'read more' beneath the photo of the Cobham Sports Association clubhouse.
