Context to changing position in Orpington

  • The essential drivers for better clinical care described, agreed and delivered from A Picture of Health have led to clinical service changes at Orpington hospital.

  • South London Healthcare NHS Trust has given notice that the Trust will be withdrawing its services in their current form from Orpington Hospital.

  • A full understanding of the health needs of the area is being prepared and being put alongside the Bromley Clinical Commissioning integrated community ambitions and must inform our final recommendations

  • If the recommendations indicate there will be any substantial changes then we would need to formally consult with the public for 3 months

  • The 4 tests will need to be applied for any major change (Clinical evidence, GP support, Impact on choice, Public/LA/Patients engagement).
