As NHS Derby and Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) we are responsible for allocating the budget for healthcare in Derbyshire and we work with all regional health partners, including hospitals, to ensure that we provide the highest quality and most up to date care possible. Part of this work requires us to periodically check that services are organised in the best way to meet current and future needs.

Before leaving hospital every patient is assessed to determine the type of care they need to support them with their recovery. We provide three types of care to patients who have ongoing support needs for their rehabilitation when they are discharged from a major hospital. We call these different types of care “pathways.”

In the Erewash area we have identified through our latest figures that we have too much of some types of care and not enough of other types, meaning patients don’t always get what is best for them.

To address this we have agreed that changes are needed to these types of care in Erewash.  The planned changes include providing more community support beds in local authority care homes and increasing the number of care staff alongside providing additional health input to support rehabilitation for people at home.

The provision of rehabilitation care and support that better meets the needs of our patients means that there is less need for community hospital beds and so our plan includes reducing them by eight.

This survey provides an opportunity for you to share your thoughts on our plans with us.
