In Scarborough and the surrounding areas, local health and care organisations are working in partnership to improve services for local people. We are working together to find ways of getting the best from our local hospital services.

In Scarborough and the surrounding area, local health partners have been working together to improve health and wellbeing of local people. You can find out more about this work by visiting the Ambition for Health website. Ambition for Health is a five-year programme to deliver joined-up and transformed health and social care services for local people, in a way that is effective and financially sustainable.

In line with this wider work, local partners have agreed to undertake a review of acute hospital services in Scarborough. On this page you will find further information about the review and how you can get involved and have your say. The work will be undertaken in stages and further information will be added regularly so do check back often.

You can also find updates from this and other Humber, Coast and Vale programmes in our newsletter – sign up here.

What is the Scarborough Acute Services Review?

What is the Review?

York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Scarborough and Ryedale CCG and East Riding CCG, working under the auspices of the Humber, Coast and Vale Health and Care Partnership, have agreed to undertake an independent review of the configuration of Scarborough acute services.

The review will consider how to provide the best possible care for local people who need to use acute hospital services within the resources (money, staffing and buildings) that are available to the local NHS. This may include delivering some aspects of care out of hospitals in GP surgeries or other community settings to better meet local peoples’ needs.

Who is involved?

The work of the review will be carried out by the following health and care organisations in the Scarborough area:

The review is also being supported by a number of expert bodies, who are providing expertise and advice throughout the process.

Why do things need to change?

We have a number of really great health and care services in our area and many people have excellent experiences of the care they receive, however, our current services are under increasing pressure due to rising demand and in many cases are finding it extremely challenging to adequately staff and resource all the services that are provided in their  current form.

Over the coming weeks, we are gathering more detailed evidence about the challenges and issues that we need to address through this review. When that exercise is complete, we will publish further information about the need to change on this website.
