Press Release - Community Health Care

Local people invited to have a say on the future of community healthcare in South Lakeland

Proposals to recruit extra nurses, physios and occupational therapists to care for more people in the community and help them avoid unnecessary hospital stays have been developed by health bosses in South Lakeland.

Morecambe Bay Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust (UHMBT) are asking local people to give their views on the proposals which would see changes to how care is given to adults who need more support than can currently be provided by GPs or district nurses at home, but don’t need to stay on an acute hospital ward.

Public consultation has begun and will continue until Friday 31 December, 2021. More information about the options and a survey is available online here. If you would like to receive a paper copy of the consultation document or require it in any other formats, please contact engagement.morecambebayccg@nhs.net or call or call 01524 519369.
