Our Clinical Services Strategy

Join the conversation and help us design our future plans for your local hospitals

Over the last few months we have been reviewing what our hospitals should look like in the future to make sure that all our residents, regardless of where they live, can access high-quality services across both our hospitals. Our plans will then be developed into what we call a clinical strategy.

A vital element of this work is to hear from the people who use our hospitals and other local health services to understand what matters most to you. We also want to hear your ideas to make services easier to access and better for patients.

We are holding the first in a series of public events in January to do just that. Everyone is welcome to come along and share their thoughts on what they would like their local hospitals to look like with our clinicians and leaders.

This is following on from our initial survey that we shared with our patients, public, partners, stakeholders and staff to start gathering views on our case for change and our priorities for the strategy. You can read more in the section below titled ‘Developing our clinical strategy – phase 1’

Developing our clinical strategy: phase 1 complete

Since our last strategy was published in 2016, there has been growing demands and increasing pressure on both our hospitals. We also know the population is increasing – a trend that will continue – so it’s vital we make sure we use our resources effectively to design and deliver services that will meet these challenges and the changing needs of our patients in a clinically safe and sustainable way.

The work is being led by our clinicians and staff, and we are also working with our partners such as GPs and local authorities, so we can ensure our patients are treated by the right person, in the right place, at the right time – whether that’s in a hospital or not.

The initial phase of the development of the strategy was to collect a wide range of views and evidence to get a complete picture of our services and understand the things likely to change over the coming years.

We collected data and information to develop a set of ‘fact packs’, which fully detail the current status of all our services. We did this through a series of interviews, workshops and surveys with staff and partners such as GPs and NELFT.

From this, we have developed the following; these were shared for your feedback:

Our current clinical services strategy

Our Clinical Services Strategy sets out the direction for our clinical services for the future, to help us to achieve our vision of providing outstanding healthcare to our communities, delivered with PRIDE – our values of passion, responsibility, innovation, drive and empowerment.

Below is our current clinical services strategy which was published in December 2016.
