Hull CCG consults on proposed new care centre

by Chris Cunniff

Hull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is leading a consultation, supported by local partners, on plans for the new Integrated Care Centre in East Hull. The centre will allow health and social care services to work together and deliver specialist care closer to home including better management of long-term health conditions and services for frail, elderly patients across Hull.

The new Centre, which is being developed by NHS Property Services and Citycare, should open at the end of 2016. It could include rehabilitation facilities, a clinically-led Rapid Access Assessment Unit and a joint base for health and social care teams.

Listening to the views of people accessing and working in local health care are extremely important to all involved. Members of the public and specifically, residents of Hull are invited to get involved in one of the following ways:

  • Attend a public meeting: if you live in Hull you’re welcome to attend one of the public meetings through March 2015. Details of these meetings can be found at www.hullccg.nhs.uk, or on our Facebook, www.facebook.com/NHSHullCCG.
  • Pick up a consultation document: you can collect your copy of the consultation document at your Hull GP, local pharmacy, dentist, optician, library or even charity shop or community centre. More than 7000 copies of the consultation document have been distributed across the city. In the centre of the consultation document you’ll find a freepost pull-out survey to share your views.
  • Visit www.hullccg.nhs.uk to complete the online survey.

The consultation will close on 19 April 2015. Further details can be found at: www.hullccg.nhs.uk
