Public Meeting – ‘Better Care Closer to Home’
12 July 2016 Marquee Pavilion Gardens, St. John's Road, Buxton. SK17 6BE
Please note the doors open at 5.30 pm with the consultation commencing at 6.00 pm Prompt.
The NHS in North Derbyshire has launched proposals for better care closer to home for older people.
A public consultation began on Wednesday 29 June 2016 and closes on Wednesday 5 October 2016.
Any changes will affect older people needing short term in-patient care, or who need help coping with dementia.
The current proposal would do away with the beds currently available at the Cavendish, replacing them with more support in the home, 'beds with care' in residential homes, rapid response teams and a specialist care unit in Chesterfield.
Many people in town are concerned that we are losing hospital beds and facilities in Buxton – approximately 60, at the last count, have gone already. If you want to have your say go to the meeting or fill in an on-line questionnaire.
