What are we doing?
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.
Next year we will be finalising a set of options for changes to hospital services and will put those options to local people in a public consultation. Before we do that, we want to involve people in developing our proposals. Working with doctors and health professionals across our area, we have started identify the things we think we need to change. We are now talking to local people about those ideas.
What are we talking to local people about?
Between 21st November and 15th December 2020, we will be talking to patients, carers and families who may be affected by the changes we want to make. This public engagement is supported by Healthwatch and endorsed by our local health and care organisations. We will be holding a series of events, focus groups and a survey to share our ideas and gather views on:
- What people think of our plans
- How they would be impacted, positively and negatively
- Changes to services we think we need to make, including the relocation of services.
This is very much the start of a conversation. We will consider the feedback from patients, carers and the public alongside clinical and financial considerations before developing a final set of options and proposals. These options will form part of a public consultation next year.
