Question

Sutton residents requiring orthopaedic surgery have increased by 2,000 since 2012 and are referred from St. Helier Hospital in Sutton to the specialist South West London Elective Orthopaedic Centre (SWLEOC) in the grounds of Epsom General Hospital. The 470 bus service from Sutton to Epsom runs only every 30 minutes, terminating in Epsom Town centre, with the connection to Epsom Hospital involving up to a 30 minute wait. Will you therefore urge TfL to introduce a direct bus service from Sutton to Epsom General Hospital?
