‘Closing fire station could be detrimental for public’, say union

Plans to close a Surrey fire station could be detrimental to public safety, the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) has said.

Banstead fire station could move to Godstone under proposals by Surrey Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS).

The fire service said moving the station nine miles away would still mean the average response time to a critical emergency would still be under the 10-minute target.

But FBU secretary Karl Jones called on the service to find a different location as “the public should not be exposed to potential greater response times”.

Change of Opening Hours at Crawley Urgent Treatment Centre

Residents in Crawley are opposing to a cut in opening hours at an urgent care centre.

The once 24-hour Urgent Treatment Centre at the hospital has now been changed to only open from 7.30am to 10pm as part of a pilot scheme by the NHS who want to ensure “safe staffing levels”.

Anyone needing overnight help are being advised to use the NHS 111, or attend emergency departments for life saving care, such as the East Surrey Hospital at Redhill.

Residents have been voicing their concerns over the additional length of time it may take to travel to alternative centres, which could influence any treatment required.
