Reshaping Health Services in Nottinghamshire
Reshaping Health Services in Nottinghamshire.

Aim: Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is launching a two-month phase of public engagement on proposals to transform hospital services in Nottingham.
These proposals are part of what we are calling the Reshaping Health Services in Nottinghamshire Programme (RHSN). This plan aims to secure Government funding to invest in our local hospital services so that they are better set up to meet people’s needs and improve people’s health and wellbeing.
The part of our plan that we are talking to the public about is called Tomorrow’s NUH (TNUH), focused in services provided by Nottingham University Hospitals (NUH) NHS Trust. This involves all the health and care organisations in our area working together to create hospital services that meet the needs of local people now and in the future.
We will be launching a public survey and holding a programme of virtual public events to enable people to have their say. We will share details of opportunities to get involved here on our website.

Have your Say on NHS Psychological Therapies in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire
Have your Say on NHS Psychological Therapies in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group want to ensure that everyone over the age of 18 who experiences low mood, anxiousness or stress is able to access appropriate, effective support should they need it, without having to go to their GP first. We are therefore looking for patients and the public to share their thoughts and experiences of accessing NHS psychological therapies, also known as talking therapies or IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapy) services, in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. This will help us to understand how to increase awareness of these free NHS services and any issues that people may experience in accessing them.

We are asking patients, members of the public, carers to take part in a quick and easy survey. The survey will take no more than 10 minutes of your time. You can access a copy of the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/G2V79HV. The survey will run from Tuesday 24 November 2020 and will close at midnight on the 8 December 2020.

If for whatever reason, you cannot complete this survey or would like to take part in a phone interview instead, kindly contact Katie Swinburn at Katie.swinburn@nhs.net to arrange a mutually convenient time and date to take part.

We will also be arranging for some virtual focus groups to take place in the very near future. If this is something that you would be interested in participating in then please contact Katie Swinburn on the above email address who will register your interest and keep you up to date.

Help Us Help You – Mental Health is a two-month campaign aiming at increasing awareness of NHS talking therapies services (IAPT). It will encourage adults with mental health issues to seek help and consider accessing NHS talking therapy via their GP or through self-referral. It will have a specific focus on BAME groups and people struggling with unemployment. We have various materials available that we can provide you with to support this campaign. Please do let me know and I am of course happy to send these to you. An example is attached which you may find useful here.

Please feel free to cascade this information to your communities and networks.

  1. Why has Rise Park Surgery taken over the running of Queens Bower Surgery temporarily 

The GP operating from Queens Bower Surgery notified NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) that he would no longer provide General Practice (GP) services at the surgery from 4 December 2020.   

The CCG is the organisation responsible for planning and paying for healthcare in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.  The CCG had a responsibility to make sure GP services continued to be available to those patients registered at Queens Bower Surgery.  This led to the CCG putting in place arrangements for Rise Park Surgery to run the surgery temporarily.   

All registered patients were sent a letter explaining the changes in December 2020.  Information was also provided about how to register at an alternative practice if this was the patients’ choice.   

  1. Current arrangements are temporary so what happens next?  

With temporary arrangements in place to 30 September 2021, the CCG is now looking at how services can be provided over the longer term.  There are many things the CCG has to take into consideration, one of which is to have a clear understanding of the impact any change to the way services are provided would have on those patients currently registered with Queens Bower Surgery.   

So far, a number of options have been put forward as follows; 

  • to move patients to another GP surgery in the area   
  • to identify a new provider to deliver services to the patients of this practice from the current building located at 201 Queens Bower Road, Bestwood Park, Nottingham. 
  • to identify a new provider to deliver services to the registered patients of this practice from a different building.  

It is important to note that no decisions have yet been made.   

  1.  Understanding the impact on patients 

The CCG would like to understand the impact the options described above would have on patients prior to making any decisions on the way forward.  To help with this we would like to hear from patients registered with Queens Bower Surgery.  During the coronavirus pandemic our conversations with you will be held in a way that is Covid-safe either through completing a survey or attending an online discussion forum.  

  1.  Have your say 

We would like to hear from as many patients who are registered at Queens Bower Surgery as possible.  Information about how you can have your say is included below; 

If you are unable to complete our survey or attend an online discussion forum but would like to share your views, please call or text 07802 655511. 

  1. What happens after with the information gathered from patients? 

The opportunity for registered patients of Queens Bower Surgery to have their say will be available from 15 March to 7 April 2021.  After this time, all the information gathered will be reviewed and will be included in a report that will be published on the CCG’s website.  The information in the report will be used to inform the options considered by the CCG and it will help the CCG decide how to provide services for patients registered with Queens Bower Surgery moving forward. 

To request this information in another language or format please contact the Engagement Team at: nnccg.team.engagement@nhs.net or call or text 07385 360071. If texting or leaving a message please provide your contact details and a member of the team will get back to you.

Consultation on an NHS Rehabilitation Centre – part of the vision for a National Rehabilitation Centre in the East Midlands.

Aim: Nottingham and Nottinghamshire CCG has launched an eight-week consultation on the opportunity presented to open an NHS Rehabilitation Centre in the East Midlands.
Currently, specialist rehabilitation services are delivered from hospitals across the region, with neurological rehabilitation provided at Linden Lodge at the City Hospital in Nottingham.
Central Government has provided £70m to build an NHS Rehabilitation Centre (NHSRC) for NHS inpatients on the same site as the Defence and Medical Rehabilitation Centre.
A new centre will increase bed capacity in the region and provide NHS patients with access to a skilled team of experts working in a purpose-built facility with access to the latest technology and equipment – all under one roof.
Patients would continue to access outpatient appointments and rehabilitation services in local hospitals throughout the East Midlands.

Timeline: The consultation ran from 27 July to 18 September 2020.
