Scarborough Acute Services Review
What is the Review?
York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Scarborough and Ryedale CCG and East Riding CCG, working under the auspices of the Humber, Coast and Vale Health and Care Partnership, are undertaking an independent review of the configuration of Scarborough acute services. The review is to consider how to provide the best possible care for local people who need to use acute hospital services within the resources (money, staffing and buildings) that are available to the local NHS.
Who is involved?
The work of the review is being carried out by the following health and care organisations in the Scarborough area:
- York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
- Scarborough and Ryedale CCG
- East Riding of Yorkshire CCG
- Humber, Coast and Vale Health and Care Partnership
The review is also being supported by a number of expert bodies, who are providing expertise and advice throughout the process.
Why do things need to change?
The future of Scarborough Hospital is an important local issue. Scarborough Hospital is an essential and valued part of the local health service. It faces a range of challenges which we must seek to address: a changing population with changing needs, variation in access to primary (GP) and community services, significant hospital staffing vacancies, low patient numbers for some specialist services that can only be provided safely at a larger scale, and the need to get the best value for money for every pound we spend.
