Wye Valley NHS Overhaul Not to Affect MIU Review
The Wye Valley NHS Trust is at the edge of experiencing an overhaul. A recent report has claimed that unexpectedly, the news would probably have no impact on the review of the Ross Minor Injury Unit's opening hours.
It is being said by the Trust's interim chief executive, Derek Smith that reviewing the MIU hours was solely the clinical commissioning group's (CCG) job. Since, the group only conducts reviews of all urgent care services.
However, decisions with interested parties had been launched by the Trust, he said on Monday at a press conference. This is so that the most appropriate options could be tested if the Trust failed to achieve Foundation status.
Mr. Smith added that it was necessary for any NHS Trust to achieve Foundation Trust status under Government policy. But, one of the requirements was breaking even. The currently available options, as per the findings, include the Trust becoming a Trust's (with Foundation Trust status) junior partner or partnering with a private sector firm.
Also, breaking up of the Trust is an option along with dispersing its services to private and public sector providers. A consultation is being launched by the Trust with staff to discuss over job losses. The attempt is to block a £9.5m financial black hole this financial year.
"We will not lose sight of the fact that patients are at the heart of what we do", said Mr. Smith.
