Following the Transforming Community Services process, NHS Nottinghamshire County has successfully found new providers for community health services in Nottinghamshire.
From Friday, 1 April 2011, County Health Partnerships will take over many of the services, and continue to build on the excellent services provided by Nottinghamshire Community Health over the last 3 years.
From 1 April, Nottinghamshire Community Health is dissolved and staff have transferred with the services to the new providers.
County Health Partnerships is a new consortium of providers that comprises of Nottinghamshire Healthcare Trust, Central Nottinghamshire Clinical Services (CNCS) and Principia Providers in Health.
Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (http://www.sfh-tr.nhs.uk) will be providing community hospital services at Mansfield and Ashfield from May 2011. In the interim period, management arrangements are in place to continue to provide excellent and safe services at these two locations. Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust will also be providing Contraception and Sexual Health Services in the north of the county; and the Stroke Early Support Discharge team services.
Other specialist services will be provided by Nottingham University Hospitals (http://www.nuh.nhs.uk) and Nottingham CitiHealth.
There has been a strong focus on staff engagement and consultation throughout the transition period, and NHS Nottinghamshire County is confident that the new arrangements will continue to provide high-quality services for patients, service-users and carers.
