Case for Change (published July 2021)

Our Case for Change report is the first in a series of official documents that we need to produce in our journey towards new hospital facilities. It explains the problems that we hope to address through funding for new hospital facilities, and how this supports ambitions to improve health and wellbeing and deliver better care for local people. 

We welcome comment on the Case for Change and are keen to hear from you – there is information on how to get involved and share your views below.
