The need for change

The NHS in Gloucestershire is working together to develop innovative plans which will help to address the challenges facing the NHS locally.

We have new proposals for change in 2013 to the following services:

  • Emergency and urgent medical care
  • Medical specialties – Gastroenterology & Hepatology, Cardiology and Respiratory (or thoracic medicine)
  • Paediatric day cases.

Each of the proposals has been developed by clinicians working within the services and managers. The proposals have also been discussed by the Clinical Priorities Forum (a group of leading clinicians from the NHS organisations in the county).

The proposals for change are clearly set out in two publications (a full and a short guide). Please take some time to read through the information before you complete the feedback form below.


We would value your feedback on the proposals for change. You can share your views by completing a Feedback Form. The deadline for feedback is 3 May 2013.

A series of Public Drop In events will be held over the next few months at locations across the county where you will be able to find out information and talk to NHS representatives about the proposed changes.

The Public Drop In events will run from week commencing 18 February to the end of April 2013. If you would like to publicise these events, posters can be found here and here.
