What was the outcome of the sub-committee's referral report to the Secretary of State for Health?

On 21 March 2017 East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group Governing Body made its decision on urgent care centres and community beds/wrap-around patient care in the East Riding of Yorkshire following a public consultation. 

At its meeting of 4 April 2017 the Council’s Health, Care and Wellbeing Overview and Scrutiny Sub-Committee unanimously resolved to refer the CCG’s Decision to the Secretary of State for Health on the basis that: 

(a) the Sub-Committee considers that the proposals are not in the interests of local health services across East Riding of Yorkshire, and 

(b) the Sub-Committee is not satisfied that consultation by the CCG has been adequate.  

A copy of the referral report can be downloaded below:

Secretary of State for Health decision

On 23 November the Sub-Committee received the decision from the Secretary of State for Health on its referral.

The Independent Reconfiguration Panel's (IRP) was instructed by the Secretary of State for Health to undertake an initial assessment of the sub-committee's referral and they have produced a report with advice to the Secretary of State.

Independent Reconfiguration Panel Advice Report (pdf 176kb opens in new window)

The Secretary of State accepts the Independent Reconfiguration Panel's (IRP) advice that:

"The Panel considers each referral on its merits and concludes that this referral is not suitable for full review because further local action by the NHS with the Sub-Committee can address the issues raised."
