Local residents are being urged to complete an official survey which will help shape the future of Bridkington hospital and the services available.
The survey will remain open until Monday, 5th April 2021. It can be accessed using the following link:
Local campaign groups and councillors have outlined the importance of taking part in the short the survey.
It is required that respondents type Bridlington Hospital on the ‘others’ section as it is not listed on the drop down box.
Bridlington county and town councillor Andy Walker said. “This is a really important, official survey and I ask everyone to answer it – it will directly help Bridlington Hospital and the NHS services available to Bridlington and district residents.”
“This is genuine engagement by health providers actually asking what matters to *us* – and that is why it is vital that everyone in the north of the East Riding (80,000 people in the catchment of Bridlington District Hospital) should make their wishes and priorities clear.” continued Cllr Walker.
“I know that our hospital is actually owned (!) by York Foundation Trust – and they just don’t engage with the people of this area – no surveys, no meetings, no questions answered, but this engagement is from Humber Coast & Vale (official NHS body) and East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group (ERYCCG).”
Councillors recently attended a ground-breaking workshop hosted online by Humber C&V and the ERYCCG to talk about their service review.
Continued Cllr Walker: “They were genuinely interested! They wanted and accepted our views and feedback. There were Councillors from right across the region, not just Bridlington, but we left them in no doubt of our priorities – Access to Services, Services Available When We Need Them, Bringing Clinics to the Community rather than Excessive Patient Travel and matching New Technology with Professionals and Patient Confidence. It was a great session.”
