We are proposing to reshape the delivery of our rehabilitation services for the elderly in the North East of Glasgow. This would result in the transfer of services from Lightburn Hospital to our acute sites at Glasgow Royal Infirmary and Stobhill Hospital and to local care homes and community facilities in the East End of Glasgow.
You can find out more about our proposal in our Information Leaflet.
To shape our proposals and hear what patients and the public think we are delivering a substantial engagement programme with people across the area which will run from the beginning of September until the beginning of December. This programme is being shaped by a Stakeholder Reference Group that includes representatives from older peoples’ groups, carers’ associations and patient groups from across the area.
The stakeholder reference group will oversee the development of a range of communications resources and will help advise us on the best means of engaging with those affected and local communities. You can find out more about the work we do with them on the Stakeholder Reference Group page.
Public engagement is being delivered jointly by the Health Board and the Health and Social Care Partnership. It is being shaped through discussions with the Stakeholder Reference Group and will include things like:
We want to hear your thoughts on our proposal and are engaging with the public and interested parties until Tuesday 6 December. Comments and feedback on all aspects of our proposal are welcome and you can do this in a number of ways as an individual, group or organisation by:
We are committed to ensuring that everyone who wishes to comment can do so. If you wish you can call and speak directly to John Barber, who is the dedicated Patient Experience and Public Involvement Manager for this engagement process, and leave your feedback without giving your name
At the end of the engagement period a report will be presented to the Board of NHSGGC who will make a decision on whether to move to a period of full public consultation.
