Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust announces findings following public consultation
Published: 15 October 2014 | Categories: Uncategorized
The organisation that provides mental health services across Nottinghamshire has published the findings of a consultation about proposed changes to some of its Adult Mental Health Services and Mental Health Services for Older People.
The proposals included plans to close Wards A42 and A43 at the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham, and Enright Close residential rehabilitation unit in Newark. As part of the proposal, the trust will still retain hospital and rehabilitation inpatient beds across the City of Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust plans to enhance its community services for adults following feedback from patients and clinical evidence that shows that people want to be cared for in their own homes, which aids their recovery. The proposals include an enhanced Crisis and Home Treatment Service, available 24 hours/seven days a week, and a Community Rehabilitation Team.
The Trust presented its findings to the Joint Health and Scrutiny Committee on 7 October which confirmed that the Trust can proceed with its proposals.
A summary report including public feedback, and details of the next steps are now being shared with the public.
