Trust is one step closer to managing health services in Rotherham

01 Feb 2011 17:04:27


An agreement has been reached between the Trust’s Board of Directors, NHS Rotherham and Rotherham Community Health Services about plans to deliver care for the people of Rotherham.

The Trust will manage care for children and young people, planned care, patients with long term conditions and staying healthy services. All these agreements are subject to final negotiations and ratification by the NHS Rotherham Board and the Trust’s Board of Directors.

Chief of Community Services Andy Irvine says: “Our aim is to deliver quality care to patients whenever and wherever they need it most. By working closely with health professionals to deliver services in the community, we will be able to give people better care more quickly and more efficiently.

“The Department of Health and the NHS Yorkshire and the Humber have approved these plans, as has the Cooperation and Competition Panel. This means that subject to ‘due diligence’ and approval by our regulators ‘Monitor’ a large part of Rotherham Community Health Services will move across to the Trust by 1st April 2011. “

In addition the Trust has also been chosen as the preferred provider of community health services in Bassetlaw and dental care in Doncaster, subject to the rigorous ‘due diligence’ process and formal sign off by the Trust Board.

Andy continues: “We’re really excited about the possibilities new opportunities in Bassetlaw and Doncaster could bring. It will be a while before we know if we have been successful, but if we are then this project will help us to expand and further improve the care we offer for all the communities we serve.”
