NHS East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group has been informed by York NHS Foundation Trust (YFT) of their plans to temporarily close Waters Ward to new admissions from 22 September 2017.
Jane Hawkard, Chief Officer of ERY CCG said:
“This is a provider decision which we understand is temporary. As this is a temporary change on patient safety grounds resulting from recruitment pressures, it is not something that we will be consulting on at this time but we will, of course, be working with YFT to understand their short term, medium term and longer term plans. The safety of our patients is paramount to all our decisions and those of YFT.”
