‘Join our Path to Excellence journey’ at NHS roadshows across South Tyneside and Sunderland
The NHS across South Tyneside and Sunderland is inviting patients, members of the public and healthcare staff to a series of drop-in roadshows over the coming weeks to find out more about Phase Two of the Path to Excellence programme.
From Saturday 13 October and over the next eight weeks, the NHS will be out and about visiting local communities, speaking to patients using local hospitals and healthcare services and attending a series of key stakeholder meetings to help people understand why local hospital services must change for the future.
People across South Tyneside and Sunderland are being encouraged to look out for the roadshows which will be widely promoted via social media and to come along to talk to the NHS and find out more about Phase Two of the Path to Excellence programme which involves the following key areas of hospital-based care:
• Emergency care and acute medicine – the care provided when patients arrive at the Emergency Department or need emergency admission to hospital
• Emergency surgery - the care provided when patients are admitted to hospital as an emergency and require an immediate operation
• Planned care (including surgery and outpatients) – the care provided when patients are referred to hospital by their GP for a test, scan, treatment or operation.
