Community hospitals are an essential element of the NHS
We are a small group of people campaigning to try to stop the closure of Newholme hospital in Bakewell under the " Better care closer to home" proposals, by North Derbyshire & Hardwick CCG, which will eventually result in the loss of all community hospital inpatient beds.
We believe that Newholme hospital is a valuable source of services offered to Bakewell and the surrounding areas and its closure would have a massive impact on the community, resulting in elderly vulnerable people been isolated in their own homes, and having to travel miles and miles to access these services which are currently in the heart of their community.
We do firmly believe that this consultation is invalid and very misleading in the lack of advertisements put out for all the public to see, which the CCG states that they have done, and also from meetings which we have attended, and the CCG referring to the closure being definate, which if this is a true consultation and the public decide they wish it to stay open then it should.
Please contact us by email if you can help out!
