Acute Hospital Reconfiguration (AHR) update

September AHR update


Acute Hospital Reconfiguration has been a long journey which started in 2014 and has now been delivered. There was a need to redesign the service offer as commissioners needed to improve the level of care and safety at our local hospitals; meet the latest national standards; ensure that the workforce was being used in the most effective way.
