Your say across South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw

In 2017,  25 organisations came together across South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw to form an ‘Accountable Care System’; one of the first in the country.  This includes 18 NHS organisations, 6 local authorities and key organisations from the voluntary sector. 

The aim is to support ways of working that will better join up GPs and hospitals, physical and mental healthcare, social care and the NHS and give our patients the seamless care they have told us they want.

 There are many opportunities for involvement in this work; from feeding views into current consultations, to being a member of the regional Citizens Panel.

Looking at hospital services

You are invited to a Health and Care Working Together event looking at hospital services in Rotherham on December 12th 2017.

 We want to future-proof local hospital services and are committed to having a general hospital in every town and city.

An independent piece of work looking at five hospital service areas is now underway to consider if there would be benefits in delivering these services differently.

The work looks at how services could be delivered so that everyone in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw has equal access to high quality, safe hospital services now and into the future and it is crucial that patients/staff and the public give us their views  as part of the process.
