Preparing for change - service moves Summer 2013

service change

Following the consultation earlier this year and approval by HCOSC in early June, we are now progressing with implementation of the service change proposals. The timescales are as follows:


  • the proposal for emergency care will be introduced on 29th July 2013
  • the proposals for medical specialities will be introduced in August 2013
  • the proposal for paediatric day cases will be introduced in December 2013, on completion of the new paediatric day unit at GRH.


In order to facilitate these changes, there will be a number of temporary ward moves over the coming months to allow our estates teams to complete the necessary refurbishment work. 

We appreciate that at times this will be difficult for staff and patients alike and we thank you for your patience.
