Sometimes people have to travel a long way to get special types of care and treatment. We want to provide more services closer to where you live.

We will also look at the experience that patients, families and carers have when they visit our hospitals. We want to offer more private rooms and give our staff the space they need to provide the best care for you.

We do not yet know what our new hospital facilities will look like or where they will be. We will use feedback from staff and local people and look at what works well in other places to decide what would be best.

We know it could take up to the year 2030 to plan and build these new hospital facilities.
