West Leicestershire Clinical Commissioning Group will be holding an engagement event on Wednesday 17 July 2013, to discuss future arrangements for community health services in Ashby.
They are keen to ensure that patients receive the most appropriate healthcare in the best place, as efficiently as possible. There is a real opportunity to provide more care to people in their homes or in local health centres and to make any time spent in hospital as effective as possible. There is growing evidence from other parts of the country that this can really improve frail, older people’s care outcomes, their independence and quality of life. More »
They want to understand how well current services meet patients’ needs and whether they are making the best use of our resources. In tandem with this, they are looking at the use of Ashby community hospital.
At the engagement event their will be more detail about current community health services in Ashby. Attendee will have the opportunity to put forward their views about how the service might be shaped in the future. Over the next few months they will develop options for the future, and will involve patients, the public and organisations in these discussions. No decisions have yet been taken.
