A public meeting is being held to discuss the threats facing St Helier Hospital.

The event will consider the recent announcement about the £219m redevelopment of St Helier being unlikely to go ahead and potential threats to the hospital’s future.

The group holding the meeting, Keep Our St Helier Hospital, is part of the south west London branch of the campaign Keep Our NHS Public.

The meeting will be held in Merton Civic Centre, Morden, on Thursday, March 13, at 7.30pm.

Speakers are expected to be announced soon and there will be an opportunity for questions from the floor.
