  • Can you help us to redesign Community Hospitals and Intermediate Bed Care?

    Created: 19/07/2018

    When: 9.30am to 4.30pm, Wednesday 15 August 2018
    Where: Lynbank Hospital, Halbeath Road, Dunfermline, KY11 4UW
    This event is being organised by Fife Health and Social Care Partnership

    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    Fife Health and Social Care Parntership would like you to work with them to improve the experience for people who require care to recover after an illness or injury. You can help them develop the options for how they best provide care in their Community Hospitals and Intermediate care beds across Fife by participating in their redesign event.

    Why we need to change

    • At any one time, around a third of people in community hospitals could be cared for in a different way and in a different place 
    • They need to support people’s wish to stay at home or near to home rather than be in hospital – they know that they do not have enough beds in some areas
    • Some of their community hospital buildings are old and won’t be suitable in years to come
    • They need to respond to the growing and ageing population now

    They invite you to participate in an event on 15 of August to develop a number of options in relation to how they deliver services in the future. 

    They are looking for members of staff along with public, patients and carers to work with them and help develop the potential models for Community Hospital and Intermediate Care Beds. There will then also be opportunities to join in an option appraisal process in September and wider engagement later in a full public consultation.

    They encourage you to come forward to help inform and shape the future of services.  Together, they want to ensure people get the right care, by the right person, at the right time.  

    If you would like to attend the Community Hospital and Intermediate Care Redesign event please contact us to reserve a place using any of the booking methods below. Please note places are limited.
