THE Hinchingbrooke Hospital Joint Overview and Scrutiny Committee, comprising councillors mostly from outside the area served by the hospital, may doubt whether the Hinchingbrooke plan for financial balance and sustainable services will work (The Hunts Post, March 21) but the Hinchingbrooke consultants feel it is by far the best option for at least the next two years.
It plans to keep the whole range of medical services currently available at an affordable price for the Cambridgeshire Primary Care Trust, the main purchasers for medical care from Hinchingbrooke, and keep the hospital in financial balance.
Consultants realise future months will require very careful planning but, with the expected co-operation with local GPs and astute streamlined ways of working, consultants believe it is achievable. The plan delivers both financial stability and many of the expectations of the Department of Health for change in health practice.
This will make Hinchingbrooke a very modern hospital which will be in the vanguard of health organisations providing excellent care in new ways.
