Humber Acute Services Review Public Engagement Events


Across the Humber region, the NHS and other partners are working together to plan for the long-term future of acute hospital services, working through the Humber Acute Services Review. The review provides an opportunity for clinicians, alongside patients and other stakeholders, to jointly shape ideas about the future of our hospital services at Hull Royal, Castle Hill, Scunthorpe, Grimsby and Goole.

Last year work started on six specialties (you can read about this on our website). Now we are looking at a broader range of hospital services over the coming months, which include:

  • Care when you need it unexpectedly (urgent and emergency care)
  • Planned care – such as planned surgery and outpatients
  • Care for women and children (maternity and paediatrics)

We would really like to involve people living in the Humber area – to find out what you think about the potential ideas being explored for the future provision of acute hospital services. We are holding workshops on the following days (you are welcome to attend both sessions, or choose the one that interests you the most):

For children and families – about children’s emergency care, paediatric services and maternity services:
