Acute (hospital based) service redesign

At the beginning of 2017, we began another piece of work to look more closely at hospital based services and how they may need to work in future to meet the challenges that we face and provide the best possible care for Island residents and visitors.

It stands to reason that, as we change more of our services to focus on preventing ill health and delivering more care in the community closer to people’s homes, then we will need lower volumes of inpatient acute (hospital based) care services. Services like: Acute medicine, Urology, Anaesthetics, ENT (ear, nose and throat surgery), Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Paediatrics, Orthopaedics, Radiology, General Surgery, Specialist Medicine, Ophthalmology and Haematology. 

These services are mostly delivered at St Mary’s Hospital at the moment, but a small number of more specialist services are also delivered on the mainland with the help of partner hospitals across the Solent such as Southampton NHS Trust and Portsmouth Hospitals Trust.
