Bob Spencer introduces Ashburton 1Acute Services Review Stakeholder Briefing: Issue 2
March 2017

The Acute Services Review (ASR) is tasked with ensuring the clinical sustainability of acute services across Devon. The first services to be reviewed are stroke services, maternity and paediatrics, and urgent and emergency care. A number of workshops were held, where clinicians from across Devon representing each of these services met to discuss the current service standards, the best practice service standards  (national clinical guidelines) and any issues affecting the quality and sustainability of the current services.

In February and March 2017,  partners of the wider-Devon STP encouraged people to discuss what is important to them about these acute services. The feedback was collated into themes and called decision-making criteria. For example, people are already telling us they feel strongly about travel times and distances so we expect this will be an important criterion that lots of people feel should influence our plans.

The discussions were held across Devon in a variety of formats and settings from attending council meetings to organising public meetings and distributing questionnaires.

The feedback was presented to the clinicians in the workstreams to ensure that the views of our wider staff, stakeholder and public are incorporated into our planning and thinking at the earliest stages.
