The basis for consultation

  • We are consulting on changes in secondary care across North Kirklees and Wakefield District – specifically:
  • Surgery
  • Inpatient children’s services
  • Maternity services
  • Emergency care

Greater demands – people living longer, more long-term illness

  • Things have changed – more specialisation, more care away from hospitals
  • Doing things differently will save more lives and give patients better outcomes:
    • bringing specialists together saves more lives and gives better clinical outcomes for patients
    • separating planned and unplanned surgery means fewer cancelled operations and the most critically ill patients are treated quickly by specialists
