Plans to move a number of Scunthorpe clinics
Health teams in North Lincolnshire are working together to improve the experience of people who attend a range of clinics across Scunthorpe.
North Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (NLCCG) and Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH) are planning to move a number of clinics from 344 Ashby Road and Great Oaks Mental Health Unit into clinic rooms in the Ironstone Centre, West Street, Scunthorpe, DN15 7BH.
These clinics include the Depot, Clozapine, Lithium, Medicine Management, health check clinics and also the Occupational Therapy Function Assessments and Memory Assessment Treatment Services (MATS).
Graeme Fagan, RDaSH Care Group Director for North Lincolnshire, said: “We are constantly striving to improve the service and experience we provide. We believe that our patients will benefit from attending their clinics in a bright and modern building.”
“They will have access to a pharmacy, café and a wider range of health professionals including three GP practices. This new location will also give us the scope to offer more clinic slots and reduce waiting times.”
The information and engagement process about the planned moves received the general support of North Lincolnshire Council’s Overview and Scrutiny Committee (OSC). The health teams are keen to hear what people think to their plans and will share the feedback with the OSC in September.
Julie Warren, Interim Chief Operating Officer and Director of Commissioning at NHS North Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “The moves will have a number of benefits for people using the services.
“The clinical commissioning group is keen to see people with mental health or memory difficulties access the services they need in settings that are appropriate for them and their carers.”
