This is a special time to join the Trust as we have successfully secured more than £312m of investment from the Government for the reconfiguration of our two hospitals with a decision due imminently. NHS Future Fit proposes that one hospital provides emergency care services (including women and children’s inpatient services) and the other hospital provides planned care services. Both hospitals would have an Urgent Care Centre that is open 24-hours a day, seven days a week.
The proposed model of hospital care has been designed by members of the public and over 300 clinicians, GPs and social care professionals. Whichever option is approved, NHS Future Fit’s proposed model will ensure a wide range of hospital services will still be available at both hospital sites and, importantly, stay within the county.
We are ideally located between the north and the south, making travelling around the UK extremely easy.
