Patients asked for their views on urgent care services at St Albans City Hospital
Patients are invited to have their say on future urgent care services at St Albans City Hospital as part of a public engagement by Herts Valleys Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) that runs until Sunday 1 August.
The engagement will inform a decision by the CCG about what type of urgent care service to provide at St Albans City Hospital once services can reopen next year. The minor injuries unit remains closed due to the ongoing pandemic response and the need to avoid people walking into the hospital so that it stays ‘COVID-19 free’ so that planned surgery can safely take place there.
While the engagement will ask people for their views on four possible options, the CCG is reassuring patients by stating from the outset that it is not seeking to cut urgent care services at St Albans.
Options being tested through the engagement are:
The CCG’s preferred option is Option 3 – a new integrated care service – because it would provide the flexibility to design an enhanced minor injury and illness service that can meet patients’ needs without overstretching resources.
