Therese Expresses Concern over ECCH's Ability to run Local NHS Services

Therese has expressed her concern that the new 'out of hospital' services due to be delivered in South Waveney are tobeundertaken by East Coast Community Healthcare (ECCH) and has called on the Chief Officer of the CCG, Melanie Craig, to think again.

Therese said: "Whilst I support the overall proposal to develop a wider range of out of hospital services, I am deeply worried about the ability of ECCH to deliver these NHS services because of their past record of failure."

In 2015 Great Yarmouth and Waveney CCG consulted the public on the 'Shape of the System' plan to replace community hospitals with NHS nursing beds in local care homes. The out of hospital services have now been delivered for most areas within the CCG with the replacement of services carried out by Patrick Stead hospital the final part of the plan.

Therese added: "It was always promised that the community hospitals including Patrick Stead would be kept open until the new out of hospital services were in place. This was the basis of my support because it was the right thing to do for patients. Unfortunately ECCH reneged on this commitment because of their failure to recruit staff at Patrick Stead hospital. Unbelievably they now want to run the replacement service. I have already expressed my deep concerns to the Chief Officer."
