Humber Acute Services Programme
Information about the review of hospital services in the Humber area.
What is the Humber Acute Services Programme?
The Humber Acute Services Programme is about designing hospital services for the future that are safe, accessible and meet the needs of our people.
To achieve this we have to change what we do and how we do it – both in our hospitals and in healthcare provided out of hospital.
Why do things need to change?
Healthcare has been changing ever since the NHS was created more than seventy years ago. Healthcare is continuing to change now, arguably more quickly than ever – particularly to respond the coronavirus pandemic. So what happens in hospitals will change. This is true for hospitals throughout the UK and across the world.
The NHS can do things today we couldn’t dream of ten years ago and the same will be true ten years from now. So, we need to plan services to reflect this change.
How can I get involved?
We are now consulting with you on changes to some services which are provided at Grimsby and Scunthorpe Hospitals.
