Public consultation - late 2013 / early 2014 (select to read more)

In late 2013/early 2014 we ran a public consultation on proposed improvements to the city's urgent and emergency care services. The proposals, which were a year in the making, have been developed working with local clinicians and patient representatives.

The vast majority of people we spoke to during the consultation supported our plans and we are now at the point of turning them into reality.

The crux of the proposals is the creation of a brand new urgent and emergency care centre that would direct patients to the right care, at the right place, the first time around. We are moving forward with this work in addition to lots of other work as part of the bigger strategy. We have established this web page to keep you informed with progress.

We have made some important documents available below which may be of interest. More documents will be added over time.
