Health chiefs have announced a second round of public meetings to give the public an opportunity to hear the outcomes from their urgent care consultation and discuss the next steps in developing the new service.
Over the last 12 weeks, NHS Scarborough and Ryedale Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has held a number of get togethers, focus groups and a survey to obtain public views towards their plans to replace current urgent care services with a new, more integrated model.
This would see the walk-in service provided at Castle Health Centre, the GP out-of-hours service and the minor injuries unit at Malton Hospital replaced with two urgent care centres – one located in Scarborough and one in Ryedale.
The aim is to provide a one-stop-shop for all urgent health care needs and ensure that patients receive the right care, first time.
The CCG is currently in the process of compiling a report of the “main issues and themes” which will be revealed at the upcoming meetings.
They will be held at Scarborough Library on Wednesday May 14; Malton and Norton Rugby Club, on Monday May 19; and the Evron Centre, Filey, on Thursday May 22. Meetings will be held between 7pm and 8.30pm.
