NHS Sheffield CCG want to know what matters to you when accessing children's surgery.

We are working together with neighbouring NHS organisations across South and Mid Yorkshire, Bassetlaw and North Derbyshire to plan and provide the best quality care for those who require specialist services.

There are several reasons for this review of these specialist services, these include:

• Different district general hospitals refer people to specialist centres in different ways
• Doctors who work in smaller hospitals don’t see as many cases as the bigger hospitals
• There is a national shortage of some health care professionals
• Some people have better experiences, better outcomes and better access to services than others. We want everyone to experience the highest quality and safest service possible.

Doctors, nurses and healthcare staff all agree that the way these specialist services are provided across the region won’t meet their high standards in the future and that this needs to change.

Staying the same isn’t an option for the future. Working across a wider area means we can make sure that everyone has the same access, experiences and outcomes and bring about excellent healthcare together.

People tell us they want their care to be as close to home as possible and this is what we are trying to do. We want to plan and buy as much of your care as close to you as we can. However, for more specialist treatment, we will need some regional centres of excellence. This could mean changing the way we provide services locally and how you access them.

It is really important that we hear what is important to you when accessing these services. To find out more information and to share what matters to you, please follow the link below.
