Whitehill and Bordon residents asked for their views

This survey is now closed.

The results are included in a paper to the Hampshire Health and Adult Social Care Select Committee on 18 September 2018. 

 


Patients in the Whitehill and Bordon area are being asked for their views on hospital outpatient services being provided at the Chase Community Hospital.

With declining numbers of patients using their services, Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is exploring the possibility of relocating the services it provides. Hampshire Hospitals is working with NHS South Eastern Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) which plans and funds the majority of health services for its residents, on finding a solution that works best for patients and for the health services.

A public survey has been launched and meetings have been held with local community groups so that residents can have their say on the proposal.

The services involved are the Hampshire Hospital audiology, ophthalmology, maxilio-facial, paediatric and x-ray outpatient services. Hampshire Hospitals does not own or manage the Chase Community Hospital but rents the space used there, as do other healthcare providers who also deliver services from the Chase.

The CCG is also holding discussions with other providers to see whether another organisation may be able to continue to deliver services from Chase Community Hospital, as happened previously with the Community Midwifery service, which was transferred to the Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

Services provided at Chase Community Hospital by other healthcare organisations will be unaffected. These include:  Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening, adult mental health and child mental health services, the day centre, iTalk, the drug and alcohol service, the musculoskeletal service (MSK), physiotherapy, the sexual health clinic, tissue viability and young person's sexual health services.

Hampshire Hospitals and South Eastern Hampshire CCG are inviting local residents to take part in the survey to give their views on the plans. The survey closed on 28 August 2018.
