Across the Humber area, 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.
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.
You can read more about the challenges we are currently facing and the reasons for conducting the review in our Issues Paper and give your views via our online survey.
