Moorlands MP, Karen Bradley asked a question on Community Hospitals at Prime Minister’s Questions today asking the Prime Minister to join her campaign to keep Leek Moorlands Hospital open with enhanced services.
“I was pleased to be able to ask the Prime Minister, the Rt Hon. Boris Johnson MP at PMQs earlier today to join my campaign to keep Leek Moorlands Hospital open in Leek with enhanced services for the benefit of all people in Leek and Staffordshire Moorlands.”
The consultation is now closed and a report has been published. Governing Body members will receive and consider the feedback and determine which options to put forward to inform the Decision Making Business Case (DMBC)
Should the Governing Bodies agree to move forward, the CCGs will begin a process to develop the DMBC with NHS and local authority commissioning partners.
There are many assurance processes to go through as well and the CCGs aim to complete this by the end of November 2019.
The aim is to take the DMBC to an Extra Ordinary Governing Body in Public in December 2019 and at this point, the Governing Bodies will consider options and decide.
