A new hospital for Hampshire: proposed changes to acute hospital services in and around Basingstoke and Winchester

NHS HAMPSHIRE AND ISLE OF WIGHT launched a public consultation about how between £700 million and £900 million should be invested in hospital services run by Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, which would transform healthcare for communities across Hampshire.

What do you think about the plans they have put forward to build a new hospital, invest in Winchester hospital, and their proposals for where services are provided from in the future?

 

The proposals – in a nutshell

Patients, local people, and NHS staff are being encouraged to get involved and give their views on the proposals which include: 

  • Building a brand new hospital on the current Basingstoke hospital site or near Junction 7 of the M3 for specialist and emergency care, such as strokes, heart attacks, life and limb threatening injuries, emergency surgery, obstetrician-led maternity care, and separate children’s emergency department
  • Significantly investing in Winchester hospital which would focus on planned operations and procedures, and provide a 24/7 doctor-led urgent treatment centre that would see and treat around 60% of the patients who currently go to Winchester A&E; same day emergency care services, and midwife-led birthing unit
  • Continuing to provide day-to-day hospital services such as outpatients, diagnostics, and therapy services from both the main hospital sites

They have published their consultation document on their website, www.hampshiretogether.nhs.uk, as well as versions in plain text, large print, easy read, a summary document and accompanying factsheets. They are all available to download and share.

Strep A infection/Scarlet fever

On top of our usual high demand for appointments at this time of year, we are seeing a growing number of phone calls, mainly related to concerns around strep A infection/scarlet fever, following reports that there has been an increase of cases. While most children will only have a mild illness, some may become seriously unwell, so if you are concerned about your child, please seek medical help.

Learn more here Strep A Scarlet Fever Information

We are doing our best to ensure patients who need to be seen on the same day can be. We may not have capacity to see everyone and understand that delays getting through can be frustrating.

We may need to temporarily delay routine appointments to ensure urgent cases can be seen quickly. This will be done according to clinical need, and we will do what we can to reduce disruption to patients. If you are unable to attend an appointment or need to rearrange, please let us know as soon as possible, so that we can offer it to others.

Please be patient with us and if your reason for contacting us isn’t urgent please consider getting back in touch on another day. If you can have your request dealt with online such as repeat prescription requests, general queries or fit to work certificates, please use eConsult.

Parents or guardians of children can also download the Healthier Together App for free onto their smartphone or through the website for instant advice on many common conditions: www.what0-18.nhs.uk/

Your local pharmacy can help with some minor ailments such as the common cold, upset stomach, or aches and pains. However, if you are getting worse or things change you can visit NHS 111 online, find your nearest Urgent Treatment Centre, or in an emergency, dial 999 or visit the emergency department.

Thank you for your understanding.
