Your Invitation to an Event to Talk About Hospital Services for Women and Children

An event is being held in Grimsby to talk about future hospital maternity and children’s care in the Humber area.

Two workshops are being held, one focusing on hospital maternity services and one focusing on hospital paediatric services and children’s emergency care, at Centre 4 on Monday 7 October.

Anyone with an interest in these services is welcome to come along and find out more and have their say about the ideas currently being explored to provide the best possible hospital care for people living in North and North East Lincolnshire, East Riding and Hull and make best use of the money, clinicians and buildings that are available in the area.

The Grimsby event takes place on Monday 7 October 2019, Centre 4, 17A Wootton Road, Grimsby, DN331HE. You can sign up for one or both of the workshops, please register using the links below.

Maternity Care: 10am-12noon (Click here to book your place)

Paediatric Services: 12.30 – 2.30pm (Click here to book your place)

The NHS and other partners across the Humber region are working together to plan for the long-term future of acute hospital services, working through the Humber Acute Services Review. The review provides an opportunity for clinicians, alongside patients and other stakeholders, to jointly shape ideas about the future of hospital services at Grimsby, Scunthorpe, Hull Royal, Castle Hill and Goole.

Last year work started on six specialties (you can read about this on the Humber Acute Services Review website).

Now we are looking at a broader range of hospital services over the coming months, which include:

  • Care when you need it unexpectedly (urgent and emergency care)
  • Planned care – such as planned surgery and outpatients
  • Care for women and children (maternity and paediatrics)

Workshops are being held around all three areas in different locations on the South and North Banks of the Humber. You can find full details by clicking here.

Your Invitation to Humber Public Engagement Events

Across the Humber region, the NHS and other partners are working together to plan for the long-term future of acute hospital services, working through the Humber Acute Services Review. The review provides an opportunity for clinicians, alongside patients and other stakeholders, to jointly shape ideas about the future of our hospital services at Hull Royal, Castle Hill, Scunthorpe, Grimsby and Goole.

Last year work started on six specialties (you can read about this on our website). Now we are looking at a broader range of hospital services over the coming months, which include:

  • Care when you need it unexpectedly (urgent and emergency care)
  • Planned care – such as planned surgery and outpatients
  • Care for women and children (maternity and paediatrics)

We would really like to involve people living in the Humber area – to find out what you think about the potential ideas being explored for the future provision of acute hospital services. We are holding workshops on the following days (you are welcome to attend both sessions, or choose the one that interests you the most):

For children and families – about children’s emergency care, paediatric services and maternity services:

Monday 7 October 2019, Centre 4, 17A Wootton Road, Grimsby, DN33 1HE

For adults – about emergency care and some of our planned care services (including orthopaedics, ophthalmology, ear, nose and throat, gastroenterology and urology):

Talking, Listening & Working Together

Since 2007, North East Lincolnshire Council and the North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group have been working very closely together to deliver health and care services in North East Lincolnshire. In 2017, the Union Board was established to make the best use of our combined resources and focus to grow and enhance the Place of North East Lincolnshire to improve the health, care and life experiences of our population.

It is very important that the Union listens to and involves local residents and stakeholders in planning, buying and developing public services to help our communities to live the best lives they can in North East Lincolnshire. We know that the services we provide are better when we listen to the people who use them.

We know that we can achieve much more when we work together with local communities to make things change and we want to get better at doing that. 

To that end we have been working with local people to develop a strategy that will set out and will ensure:

  • we talk to people as early as possible so we can all work together to develop solutions;
  • we make sure everything we do is informed by what local people share with us about their experiences, concerns and aspirations;
  • we can be confident that none of our communities are left out of the conversation

We want to hear your views to help us to get this right so everyone in North East Lincolnshire have the opportunity to participate and are confident that their views count.

We will be out and about at locations across North East Lincolnshire during August & September to hear your views.
