THis came up on the East Riding of Yorkshire Site today 7thy March

East Riding of Yorkshire PCT Board to receive details of community
health services capital funding bid

East Riding of Yorkshire PCT will outline details of its capital funding bid for the future of community health services at its Board meeting on 25th July 2007. The bid for capital funding to support ‘A new start for community health services’ represents a multi-million
pound investment in developing new first class health facilities across the PCT area.

Dr Duncan Ross, Director of Commissioning and Procurement, said:

“The submission of the capital bid is a major milestone towards developing health services
in the East Riding of Yorkshire that meet the needs of residents now and in the future.

“The bid, if successful, will enable a major new community hospital build to take place in Beverley, a new build to modernise facilities in Hornsea and refurbishment of the Alfred Bean Hospital, Driffield and parts of the Bridlington and Goole Hospitals. The capital bid
also contains proposals for the development of primary and community facilities in the West Wolds.”

The investment in new and improved facilities will add to the £8.9 million already committed to improving patient choice and access to good quality services, through the development of Neighbourhood Teams. Responding to patient demand for access to treatment out of hours, the teams will provide a rapid care response 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
