Decision on future of hyper-acute stroke services in our region

A business case proposing the future provision of hyper acute stroke services in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw will be discussed, with a decision set to be made at a meeting of the Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups on Wednesday 15 November, 2017.

The meeting, from 4:00 til 5:30pm, will be carried out in public and also live-streamed and made available on the Health and Care Working Together website for anyone who is unable to attend but would like to see and hear the discussion that takes place.

Led in partnership by the NHS 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.
