Despite paediatric colleagues being certain there would be fewer beds, at the consultation today I was told by two corporate people from Trust that bed numbers overall were increasing. There may be an issue about how many in patient and how many day case?
They have not yet finished the outline business case to take first to NHSE then the DH, but probably will have done so early next year.
I wonder how they will ensure NHS gets good value for money when they sell off land/buildings when there is little expertise in this area. Interestingly, Brotherton, Old Med School and Gilbert Scott are all in the Naylor inventory of “surplus assets”, although the trust has previously said they had an estates strategy pre-Naylor and have not modified it post Naylor.
Given all the emphasis on community care, should any surplus estate on LGI site be transferred to community?
Does council have any views/leverage here?
