HAS Consultation 280
New events added as part of Northern Lincolnshire hospitals public consultation
New exhibition and roadshow events have been added to the calendar as part of a public consultation seeking people’s views on a proposed change to some hospital services in Northern Lincolnshire.

The local NHS is stressing there are no plans to make changes to accident and emergency departments and most hospital services would remain as they are now.

However, it is proposing to consolidate a small number of more complex medical, urgent and emergency care and paediatric (children’s) services at Diana Princess of Wales Hospital in Grimsby, rather than across the two hospital sites in Grimsby and Scunthorpe General Hospital.

NHS Humber and North Yorkshire Integrated Care Board (ICB) has now announced there will be three further exhibitions for those who were unable to make it to the public events in October:
  • Monday 4 December 2023, 12:00pm-3:00pm at Scunthorpe Central Library.
  • Thursday 7 December 2023, 12:15pm-3:15pm at Morton Village Hall, Gainsborough.
  • Saturday 9 December 2023, 10:00am-2:00pm in St John’s Market, Scunthorpe.

Moving colleague blog marks launch of UK Disability History Month.
Disability History Month 2023
UK Disability History Month (UKDHM) takes place from Thursday 16 November to Saturday 16 December 2023 and provides a platform to focus on the history of the struggle disabled people continue to face for equality and human rights.

This year’s theme is around the experiences of disabled children and young people in the past, in the present and in the future. There are 16m disabled people in the UK and 11% of children are disabled. Though 80% of adults become disabled people while at working age, for some this figure hides delayed diagnoses or hidden conditions from childhood.

In a moving blog titled 'My invite to the party', a colleague working in our partnership shares their story of adult diagnoses and how this impacted them to mark the launch of UKDHM in Humber and North Yorkshire.

Calderdale Framework Foundation Day
Calderdale Framework
Wednesday 6 December 2023, 9:00am-4:00pm

NHS Humber and North Yorkshire Integrated Care Board (ICB) is pleased to offer the opportunity to find out more about the Calderdale Framework at a free, full-day introductory workshop at Goole Hospital.

This structured, evidence-based workforce transformation approach supports you to consider new ways of working to meet ongoing health and social care workforce challenges. The process of applying CF leads to the development of a detailed competency training document, based on tasks and functions which are needed to deliver service user/patient-focused services. This provides the basis for development of new ways of working, work-based training, and reduces unjustifiable variations in care.

The Foundation Day workshop offers you the chance to learn more about this methodology and to explore how it may support you in your workforce challenges.

If you wish to register your interest or have any questions, please contact Helen.Yewdall@nhs.net.
