Your update for July 2018

Welcome to your monthly update of local NHS news and opportunities to help shape health services in Sheffield. If you have any comments or queries, please feel free to email us.

Thursday 12 July 2018
2 – 4pm (registration from 1.30pm)
St Mary’s Church and Conference Centre, Bramall Lane, S2 4QZ 

You are invited to attend our Annual Public Meeting to hear what we’ve achieved over the past year, our challenges and our plans for the future.

As the NHS is turning 70 this year, we will also be looking at the progress the NHS has made over the years and the changes that staff and patients have seen. There will also be the opportunity to ask our senior team any questions about healthcare commissioning in the city.

Have you been offered choice by your GP?

Have you been referred by your Sheffield GP for further treatment in the last 12 months? We want to know if you have been offered the choice you should be getting.


Urgent Care Public Reference Group

People from communities and groups across Sheffield met on June 11 to consider some of the key issues raised during the consultation on proposed changes to urgent care services in the city.

The public reference group met to help the CCG work on the feedback received during the 18-week consultation.

It included representatives from neighbourhoods across the city – drawn from Patient Participation Groups, charities that support younger and older people, people with a visual impairment, the universities, third sector organisations that represent carers, and representatives of groups with diverse protected characteristics.

This is part of the CCG’s work to identify whether the issues raised in the consultation feedback can be overcome and is also being done with staff and clinicians from partner and provider organisations across the city.

South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Hospital Services Review


An Independent Review set up to ensure people across South Yorkshire, Bassetlaw and Chesterfield continue to receive excellent hospital services now and into the future has made a series of recommendations in a report recently published – and patients, staff and the public are invited to share their thoughts.

The Hospital Services Review (HSR) Report strongly recommends that to continue to provide high quality services across the region, hospitals in Barnsley, Bassetlaw, Chesterfield, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield must work together even more closely and in ways that connect teams across all sites.

The report is currently being considered and discussed by all committees and individual boards and governing bodies within the partnership before the next steps are agreed – and patients, staff and the public are invited to share their own thoughts on the report by 13th July 2018 to help develop the future of these hospital services in our region.

Sheffield Mental Health Guide

The Sheffield Mental Health Guide is an information website listing support services for people experiencing mental health difficulties and distress in Sheffield. The website is endorsed by key figures in health and social care in the city, and also includes activities and information about specific mental health issues.

Survey for the siblings of patients

Having a brother or sister with a long term condition or a disability can be challenging. Sheffield Children’s Youth Forum (part of Sheffield Children's NHS Foundation Trust) would like to provide more support and more information for the siblings of patients, but first needs to get a better understanding of how it feels from the sibling’s perspective.
The short survey will help gain a better understanding of the challenges and allow the Youth Forum to create support resources and provide recommendations for clinical teams.

Changing Sexual Health Services

Sheffield City Council want to make some changes to the way services are provided to make it easier for people to get to the service that they need, at a time when they need it and in a place that is convenient for them.

They are running a public consultation to find out what matters most to people when visiting a sexual health service. The feedback from the survey will be used to plan how services will be provided in the future. 
NHS Sheffield CCG works with healthcare professionals, patients and the public to deliver high quality, efficient and cost effective healthcare services for people across the whole of Sheffield. You can learn more about our engagement work here.

'Involve me' has been set up as a way of involving people who care about their local NHS and who would like to be kept up to date, or get involved and have their say, on commissioning decisions for the benefit of Sheffield people.

Thank you once again for getting involved with healthcare services locally and don’t forget to pass the message on so we can reach as many people as possible!
