“We would once again like to reiterate that absolutely no decisions have been made about the future number or location of any of our services. We are considering how all of our services fit into our Shaping Our Future vision to create a seamless health and care system that provides the best clinical outcomes and value for money, based on people’s needs and the money we have available to spend. Once the detail of the service model is clear we can then look to see what infrastructure, including estates such as our minor injury units, is required to support this.
“Our plans are not secretive. We are working with clinicians, social care, volunteers, councillors and people who use our services on the re-design of our health and care system. This process is ongoing and the third round of our co-production workshops has just ended. What people tell us will be used to help develop our plans and we will consult with the public once we have developed plans that meet the needs of each community.”
