While this will change budget allocation and commissioning arrangements within the area, we want to assure our communities it does not affect the daily operations of Bassetlaw Hospital – Bassetlaw Hospital remains a key site within our Trust and you are unlikely to see any changes on a day-to-day basis.
The decision does not change existing patient pathways, and individuals will continue to be seen and treated by their local GP practice, as well as at Bassetlaw Hospital, and they will also carry on receiving other health and care services in the same way. It also does not affect any future developments and investments planned for this site (watch this space!)
The key difference will be the development of stronger connections between Nottinghamshire ICS and the Trust in the planning of health and Social care services to improve the health and wellbeing of Bassetlaw people. We can’t wait to get started.
Thank you and we will share any other relevant updates in the coming weeks and months.
