The Trustwould like to thank you for contributing to our recent survey regarding future services at Ellen Badger Hospital. We had an overwhelming response from members of the community and staff, demonstrating how valued local health care services are.
Ellen Badger Hospital is key to the Trust’s future strategy and we are now undertaking a thorough appraisal of all potential service options, taking into account their relative benefit, and whether they can be delivered safely and for the long term. This is a complex process where a number of factors need to be considered, including carrying out a number of tests on the site to help understand the land and where we can build, as well as developing a travel plan which will help to identify car parking requirements.
To help develop the options, the Trust is working closely with key stakeholders and other organisations, including; local GPs and commissioners, the voluntary sector, patient participation groups and other health and social providers, including mental health services.
This is a very exciting time for Ellen Badger Hospital and the public support has been phenomenal. South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust is extremely grateful for all of the input so far and looks forward to working with the community as the development progresses; ensuring Ellen Badger Hospital is the best it can be.
