Current engagement & consultations

Some of the work programmes below were undertaken by NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). From 1 July 2022, the CCG became an Integrated Care Board (ICB). The ICB will continue these current programmes of work going forward.

Relocation of Colorectal and Hepatobiliary Services 

Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH) is in the process of building a new theatres complex and 20-bed ward at the City Hospital. To help reduce waiting lists and increase the number of beds available for emergency patients at the Queen’s Medical Centre, it is proposed that planned surgery for colorectal and hepatobiliary (HPB) patients is relocated from the Queen’s Medical Centre to this new facility at the City Hospital.

Outpatients, diagnostics and pre-operative assessment would remain at the Queen’s Medical Centre and the Treatment Centre, so there would be no change to delivery of these aspects of the service.

In the longer-term, through the Tomorrow’s NUH proposals, NUH would like to create a Centre of Excellence for planned care at the City Hospital campus, with the Queen’s Medical Centre being the main location for emergency care. This service move is aligned with those proposals. A full public consultation on Tomorrow’s NUH is planned for mid-2023.
We are engaging with patients, carers and people currently accessing these services (including via a survey) to understand any potential impacts the move would have.  To have your say around this service, please copy this link into your web browser https://forms.office.com/r/hXQqmFEUar. This survey will close on Sunday 13 November 2022.

Have your say to inform the development of a new mental health website for adults

Local mental health leads would like to understand the current experiences and feedback of people with lived experience, carers, and professionals, with regards to accessing information on adult mental health services, in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. This will help inform the expansion of the NottAlone website, to enable an all-age, single point of access, for mental health information and support in the region and highlight any other avenues for consideration when promoting local mental health services.

Background

Mental health services for children, young adults and adults are delivered by numerous providers across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. This means that for people to identify the services available, they have needed to know the websites to visit or the numbers to call. In addition, these services have often been promoted in isolation, rather than interlinked or through a specific pathway, leading to possible confusion for service-users, carers and health professionals.     

As the local health and care system is investing significantly in mental health services, we would like to create an online space that is accessible and easy to navigate, that will help people of all ages find the right information as quickly as possible, when they need it. 

The NottAlone website has already been launched for young people, providing the relevant information and signposting, for this age group. We are now looking to expand the site, so that people of all ages can see the mental health services available across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, in one place and identify whether other avenues for providing this information may also need to be considered.

If you have adult lived experience, or are a carer or health professional, we want to know how you access information for mental health services in the region, and what your experience has been like accessing this information online.

How you can get involved

If you are an adult with lived experience, or are a carer or professional, we want to know how you access information for mental health in the region, and what your experience has been like accessing this information online.

There are a number of ways to give us your feedback, in a safe way:

  • You can participate in an online survey here or request a hard copy to complete at your leisure.
  • You can share your views by phone.
  • You can express your interest in joining a virtual focus group.
  • You can request the Engagement Team attend one of your community group meetings.
  • You can express your interest in joining a coproduction group to support this work on a more ongoing basis.

If you need a hard copy of the survey, want to share your views over the phone or through a virtual focus group, or you would like us to attend a community group meeting, please contact the Engagement Team via nnicb-nn.engagement@nhs.net or call or text 07818580719.

We need to complete all engagement on this initiative by Sunday 30 October 2022.

Your feedback as part of the engagement will be captured and shared anonymously. Your responses may be shared with other services but the data you provide will be anonymised so we will not analyse or share any information that will make you identifiable.

A report on the engagement activity undertaken, will be produced and made available later this year, on the ICB webpage – Current and previous engagement & consultations – NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ICB.

We will also be looking to continue working with people who have lived experience, carers and professionals on an on-going basis as part of a co-production group. To express your interest in being involved in this group, please contact nnicb-nn.engagement@nhs.net or call or text 07818580719. Your details will be passed onto the mental health leads to enable your further involvement with this work.

To request this information in another language or format please contact the Engagement Team at: nnicb-nn.engagement@nhs.net or call or text 07818580719. If texting or leaving a message, please provide your contact details and a member of the team will get back to you.

Acute Stroke Survey

In July 2020, the hyperacute and acute stroke services were temporarily moved from Nottingham City Hospital to Queens Medical Centre allowing all urgent and immediate treatment for patients with a suspected stroke to be centralised. This was based on national instructions from NHS England that had to be followed so that patients were less likely to catch Covid in hospital.

NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ICB and Nottingham University Hospital are currently reviewing this move and looking at whether it should be made permanent.

We would like to hear from service users, patient representatives and carers who have had to access the stroke services provided by Nottingham University Hospitals for urgent and immediate treatment either at Nottingham City Hospital pre-July 2020 or at Queens Medical Centre post-July 2020.

Independent Thematic Review into NUH Maternity Services

NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSEI) jointly established an independent thematic Review of maternity incidents, complaints and concerns at Nottingham University Hospitals (NUH).

This review was concluded on 10th June 2022 and for more information visit the maternity review website.

A new review has started led by Donna Ockenden and you can find out more by visiting the Ockenden Maternity Review:

Reshaping Health Services in Nottinghamshire – Tomorrow’s NUH March 2022

Aim: Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) launched its second phase of public engagement on proposals to transform hospital services in Nottingham, collectively called Tomorrow’s NUH (TNUH).

TNUH is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform the hospital services and facilities run by Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH). It is part of the Government’s New Hospital Programme, which is investing in buildings and equipment across the NHS, to ensure our healthcare system and staff have the facilities they need for the future. 

It also is a significant part of Reshaping Health Services in Nottinghamshire (RHSN), a long-term strategy involving all local health and care organisations working together, ensuring that we continue to provide leading edge, innovative and life-changing care well into the future.

This phase of engagement has now concluded. To access a copy of the engagement report, please click here.

Interpretation and Translation Services

NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group would like to hear from patients, patient representatives and GP Practice staff who have accessed or are likely to access Interpretation and Translation Services because the citizens first language is not English. The feedback provided will be used to inform the specification of a new service from December 2022.

Background:

The NHS has a statutory obligation under the Equality Act 2010 to provide access to interpreting services. Providing high quality interpretation and translation services is an important part of ensuring that patients receive the right care, with informed consent, and have improved health outcomes. Within Nottingham and Nottinghamshire CCG there is an historic inequity to interpretation and translation services accessed via GP practices between Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire County which we are trying to address as part of the latest review. 

In Spring 2021 the CCG conducted a review of interpretation and translation services which looked at the current commissioned services and the needs of the population. It also looked at how potential changes to services would impact on patients. Feedback was gathered through two engagement events as well as an Equality & Quality Impact Assessment (EQIA).

This further period of engagement is scheduled to more deeply understand what patients and patient groups deem to be their priorities and their views on application of criteria when accessing interpretation and translation services.

About the service:

  • Nottingham City GP practices – since 2017 access to Interpretation and Translation services has been via Nottingham CityCare Partnership. This service was commissioned by the former Nottingham City Clinical Commissioning Group based on the needs of their patient population and includes:-
    • face to face interpreters
    • telephone/remote interpretation
    • medical document translation available at a cost to the practice / patient.
  • Nottinghamshire County GP practices – service available via Language Line Solutions Ltd commissioned by NHS England and includes:-
    • Telephone / interpreters
    • medical document translation

Children and Young People’s Mental Health Local Transformation Plan and Vision and Values

The local NHS in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire would like your help to understand parents and carers views on future plans for children and young people’s mental health in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

Background

A Local Transformation Plan for Children and Young People’s Mental Health will be published on the NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) website on 30th September 2021.

The plan will set out how local services will invest resources to improve children and young people’s mental health across the “whole system”. All local areas are asked to refresh and update these documents and each year the CCG updates the document on our website.

As part of this process, the CCG would like to engage with parents and carers in the community to understand their views and take their advice on key messages. Once we have these views we will create a more accessible public facing document.

How you can help

We need the public’s help to create a more concise public facing version of the plan which will be co-produced with children and young people and parents and carers.

The CCG will be running a series of virtual workshops for parents and carers to share their views.

Participate in one of two virtual workshops taking place on:
Friday 17 September, 1pm to 2pm.
Wednesday 22 September 6pm to 7pm

To register your interest in attending a virtual workshop, please click here.

We are also keen to talk to any groups for parents and carers who are interested in sharing their views and would like to hear more about the work that we are doing. If you are currently meeting either virtually or in a community setting then please do contact the Engagement Team via nnccg.team.engagement@nhs.net or call or text 07818580719 in order that we can arrange to attend before 1st October 2021.

*All engagement will end on Friday 1st October 2021.

A copy of the accessible public facing document will be shared on the ICB website and the Integrated Care System website.

If you need any more information, please get in touch with the Engagement Team and to request this information in another language or format please contact the Engagement Team at: nnccg.team.engagement@nhs.net or call or text 07818580719.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

Nottingham and Nottinghamshire NHS Integrated Care Board (ICB) is working with Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH) to redevelop and expand the neonatal unit and maternity theatre facilities at the Queen’s Medical Centre (QMC). This will provide 21 additional cots (taking the total from 17 to 38), and mean expanding the smaller of the two theatres, so that both are full size in line with national standards. 

NUH is the main neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) in this part of the East Midlands, and currently provides care for premature babies and their families at both the QMC Hospital and the City Hospital sites.  The planned expansion would create a larger NICU which would include intensive, high dependency and special care cots at the QMC. The Neonatal service at the City Hospital would become what is known as a ‘Local Neonatal Unit’ (LNU), where babies could be supported in intensive care for up to 48 hours, before being transferred to the QMC for longer term care if needed.

We have gathered feedback from families and members of the public who have recently used NUH maternity and neonatal services, and from relevant community organisations, so that we can make sure that the redesign work is carried out in such a way that families continue to have a positive experience of care during this period and beyond. 

A copy of the final report from all engagement activity can be found here.

Your views on the Acute Home Visiting Service

NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group sought to hear from people living in Ashfield, Mansfield, Newark and Sherwood who recently accessed a same-day home visit after contacting their GP. Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ICB has taken on responsibility for this area from 1 July 2022.

What is the Acute Home Visiting Service?

The Acute Home Visiting Service is for patients who need to be seen in their own home/care home. When patients contact their GP requesting a same day home visit, the GP’s can choose to refer on to the Acute Home Visiting Service and a dedicated team of Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANP’s) and Emergency Care Practitioners (ECP’s) will visit patients in their own home or care home.

This service is provided by Primary Integrated Community Services (PICS) and has been delivered across 39 practices in Mid Nottinghamshire, covering practices in Mansfield, Ashfield, Newark and Sherwood for four years.

The aim of the service is to reduce unnecessary hospital admissions and enable patients to be cared for at home when it is clinically safe to do so. The service supports GPs to manage urgent care needs and enables them to focus on other priorities in Primary Care.

NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire wanted to review this service and sought to hear from people who have accessed a same-day home visit following contact with their GP in Ashfield, Mansfield, Newark and Sherwood.

They also wanted to hear from carers to understand their views and experiences of the Acute Home Visiting Service. This is separate to any evaluation that may have already been completed and the feedback will be used to inform future reviews and plans for the service.  

Colleagues within primary care across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, including Bassetlaw, were also invited to share their views.

How you got involved:

Service users and carers

  • Participated via an online survey
  • Shared your views via a telephone call

Primary care staff

  • Participated in an online survey
  • Shared your views directly via email

A copy of the final report from all engagement activity can be found here.
