Work has now begun to look at how some hospital services are provided and what needs to happen to make sure they can continue to provide great care when it is getting harder to find the staff they need, and as demands on health and care increase because we are living for longer (which is good news, but means we need to provide different care to keep ourselves living well).

This work will not look at closing any of the current general hospitals in South Yorkshire, Bassetlaw or Chesterfield.

Five hospital services are the focus of this work, these are:

·         Care during pregnancy and for mother-and-baby (Maternity)

·         Care when you need it unexpectedly (Urgent and Emergency Care)

·         Care for poorly children who need a hospital service

·         Care for people who have a stroke

·         Care for stomach and intestine conditions including investigations (Gastroenterology and endoscopy)

If you would like it, you can find more detailed information on the review on our website: https://www.healthandcaretogethersyb.co.uk/what-we-do/working-together-future-proof-services/looking-at-hospital-services

This is your opportunity to get involved in shaping what future services will look like.

Your thoughts are important to us and will help us to focus the work we do.
