Consultation deadline extended
Monday 9th January 2017
People living in Barnsley, Bassetlaw, Chesterfield, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield are being given more time to share their thoughts on proposals to change our region’s hyper acute stroke services, as well as some children’s surgery and anaesthesia services.
The proposals, incorporating public feedback, have been developed by Commissioners Working Together, a partnership of the region’s NHS clinical commissioning groups and NHS England to improve services across South and Mid Yorkshire, Bassetlaw and North Derbyshire - with the consultation being extended until Tuesday 14 February 2017.
Will Cleary-Gray, director of sustainability and transformation for South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw, said: “Although we took account of the Christmas period in our planning, we can see from our data and from conversations we’ve had, it’s been a very busy period for people. We also know that the proposals have been caught up in conversations about the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP). To make sure as many people as possible are given the opportunity to take part in the consultation and have conversations about the proposals we are therefore extending the deadline until Tuesday 14 February.”
Depending on where people live, some patients have better experiences and access to services than others and have come together to change it. If approved, the proposals would see some services no longer being carried out at Barnsley, Rotherham and Chesterfield Hospitals, with others becoming specialist centres for the whole region.
