York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Scarborough and Ryedale CCG and East Riding CCG, working under the auspices of the Humber, Coast and Vale Health and Care Partnership, have agreed to undertake an independent review of the configuration of Scarborough acute services.
The review will consider how to provide the best possible care for local people who need to use acute hospital services within the resources (money, staffing and buildings) that are available to the local NHS. This may include delivering some aspects of care out of hospitals in GP surgeries or other community settings to better meet local peoples’ needs.
Have your Say!
Engagement events took place on Monday 15th October in Scarborough, and Tuesday 16th October in Bridlington. The meetings were not to consult on proposals, as no proposals have been developed. They were to seek input into the development of the evaluation criteria.
In order to continue our engagement work with you, we have developed an online survey, where you can provide views and feedback on what is important to you and your family in relation to acute hospital services, along with any ideas you would like to share with the review team at this early stage.
Phase 1 Update
The first stage of the review process is now complete and work involved a detailed analysis of the existing services, how they work and how they are used, alongside data looking at how these services may change or develop in future years as the population’s needs change.
On 19 March HCV issued a press release which was shared with patients and the public who attended the public events.
A summary document has also been published on the HCV website, along with a public facing FAQ document.
Work is now underway to plan the next phase of the review. This will involve using the information gathered so far to look at a range of possible ways services might be delivered. It is expected that, from this work, a shortlist of potential scenarios will be developed. However, at the moment; there are no definitive timescales in place for phase 2.
