Decision making meeting 28 June 2017

A business case proposing the future provision of children’s surgery and anaesthesia services in South and Mid Yorkshire, Bassetlaw and North Derbyshire will be discussed, with a decision set to be made at a meeting of the Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups on Wednesday 28 June, 2017.

The meeting will be carried out in public and also live-streamed and made available on our (Commissioners Working Together) website for anyone who is unable to attend but would like to see and hear the discussion that takes place.

Led by Commissioners Working Together – a partnership between the eight clinical commissioning groups in our region- the review, case for change and business case have been developed over the last three years. Clinicians, service managers and patients have been involved in the work, which has looked at patient experience and outcomes, staffing levels and each place’s ability to meet the necessary standards for their service.

The public consultation took place between 3 October 2016 and 14 February 2017 and the findings and feedback received has been incorporated into the final business case. The independent report on the findings is available here.

If approved, the proposals would also see some unplanned, out-of-hours children’s surgery and anaesthesia services being delivered in a more planned and consistent way across the region, with a small number of operations no longer being provided at Barnsley, Chesterfield and Rotherham Hospitals.

Running in conjunction with the consultation for the future of children’s surgery and anaesthesia services was a review and consultation into hyper acute stroke services across South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw. Further, more detailed work is ongoing to develop the business case for this service which will mean the two discussions will take place on different dates.

Working in partnership with the region’s hospital trusts, further work is being carried out on the costings for hyper acute stroke services with a decision likely to be made towards the Autumn.
