Joint Statement: Hospital at Home Service
Joint statement from NHS West Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group and the Countess of Chester Hospital NHS Foundation Trust:
NHS West Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group and the Countess of Chester Hospital NHS Foundation Trust are pleased to announce that the Children’s Hospital at Home service delivered by the Trust will continue for local children from July 1, 2016.
In April we jointly agreed to suspend proposed changes to the Children’s Hospital at Home service until the end of June 2016 to allow time for senior management teams and clinicians from both organisations to listen to the views of patients and their families.
As part of this process, senior representatives from both organisations arranged to meet representatives of affected families on June 23, 2016. At this meeting they were informed of the decision to continue the service.
