Royal Surrey plans merger

Today the Royal Surrey announced that it intends to merge with Ashford and St Peters. The two Boards and Executives have agreed to proceed with creating a full Business Case.

Legally no merger can take place without both sets of Governors formally approving (by a  majority). Thus as a Governor I will have a vote. At the moment I am not opposed to a merger albeit I need more details of the advantages to patients. As I get my head around the detail and can judge what is reality and what is aspiration or spin I will report here.

I represent the Trust members in Guildford and have already made the point that some meaningful process for consulting Trust members (and the wider public) must be devised. If I am to vote in a way representing the Trust members who elected me and the public in Guildford then I need to know what they think.

More to follow.
