Minutes:

A representative of the Chief Accountable Officer, Stockport Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) submitted a report (copies of which had been circulated) providing the Board with an update on the current situation in relation to the breast service at Stockport NHS Foundation Trust including progress with the transfer of commissioning of Breast Services to neighbouring NHS Trusts to ensure residents had timely access to high quality Breast Services. 

 

It was stressed that the proposals would not affect breast screening but related only to breast surgery. It was also confirmed that the service was closed to new referrals in May.

 

The Chair reported that the Greater Manchester Joint Commissioning Board had begun a process for reviewing Breast Services across the city-region with a view to commissioning services differently to improve quality and addressing shortages of specialist staff. It was highly likely that Stepping Hill Hospital would have lost these services in the future.

 

The following additional comments were made/ issues raised:-

 

·         While the proposals were regrettable, but necessary to ensure access to safe and quality services.

·         Difficulties in delivering the service had arisen due to staffing shortages in in breast radiology that was reflective of a national trend and experienced  by other trusts that did not provide screening services.

·         The support to the Foundation Trust from the CCG and Council, including  from the Adult Social Care & Health Scrutiny Committee was welcomed.

·         Staff had been transferred and had worked hard to manage patient transfers. All those involved had worked closely together in the best interest of patients.

·         It was important that patients were empowered to make decisions about which hospital service was best for them.

·         The experience in General Practice had been of very little disruption and the process for the new pathway had been managing well.

·         While some patients may have to travel further, in comparison to access elsewhere in the UK it compared favourably.

 

RESOLVED – That the report be noted.
