‘We are listening’ is the message from the NHS organisation looking at future services at Milford on Sea War Memorial Hospital.
Feedback from local people has shown strong support for health and wellbeing services to be provided ‘close to home’ in Milford on Sea.
Clinicians and managers from NHS West Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) will continue talking to local people about the hospital’s future use after publishing the feedback from drop in events and surveys.
Professor Johnny Lyon-Maris, local GP and Clinical Director at the CCG, said: “We would like to thank everyone who came to see us and gave us their views through the survey.”
Local people said they would like to see a variety of community services such as:
- Leg ulcer clinics
- Blood tests
- Tailored exercise groups
- Care home beds for short-term care and long-term need
The feedback is being used to help shape the next steps in the decisions around Milford on Sea War Memorial Hospital.
