1 MEETING THE CHALLENGE Addressing the issues Al-Hikmah Centre 25 April 2013

2 Thank you for inviting us

3 Feedback so far You value Dewsbury Hospital You want the people who run the local NHS to have the best interests of North Kirklees people at heart You think it’s all about the money Longer journey times make it much harder for visitors You think we’re not being honest about A&E You think our proposals for A&E would put lives at risk You are worried that the proposals don’t take account of deprivation and poor health locally

4 Most of your everyday healthcare needs would still be met locally : Outpatients, tests, x-rays, scans Planned operations All antenatal and postnatal care (inc consultant led appointments) Birth (if low risk) Rehabilitation Summary : if you live in the Dewsbury/ Batley area

5 Summary : if you live in the Dewsbury/ Batley area (contd) If you needed care in an emergency : most care would still be provided locally (A&E, assessment) emergency day care would mean fewer people needed to stay in hospital If you were very sick, needed specialist treatment or had complex needs, you would go to Pinderfields More of your care would be provided by consultants and specialist trained nurses

6 Why the changes? Care has changed dramatically: more services outside hospital inc patients’ own homes constantly improving techniques shorter times in hospital Specialist centres save more lives Separating planned and unplanned services gives better results Not enough doctors to staff all sites 24/7 More demand Need to make better use of money and sustain services for the future

7 How would people benefit? More lives saved More people making a better recovery Fewer patients having to be admitted to hospital unexpectedly Services more joined-up Better use of your money
