Community inpatient review in South Warwickshire

Update on the community hospital inpatient review

South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust is currently undertaking a review of the inpatient beds at our community hospitals, Ellen Badger and the Nicol Unit at Stratford Hospital. The focus of this review is to ensure we are providing the services that meet the health and care needs of the people of south Warwickshire, both now and in years to come.

The first stage of the review has been exploring previous, current, and future use of the community hospital beds. We have been working with Healthwatch Warwickshire to gather the views of previous and potential patients regarding the inpatient services. We are very grateful to Healthwatch and everyone who took their time to share their views and experiences. This feedback will help us to evaluate the current services in more depth and enable us to to shortlist possible future proposals which will include the potential of staying the same. There will be opportunities for future engagement with patients, carers and wide stakeholders and we undertake this process.

It is really important that this review is thorough and takes into account a number of contributory factors including community and staff feedback, clinical safety, learning from Covid-19 and financial and operational sustainability. There will therefore be a number of steps before there is a final proposal.
