Review of Clinical Services between Colchester Hospital University NHS FT and Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust
Report of the Independent Clinical Senate Review Panel – 1 November 2017
In 2016, the Trusts committed to entering a long-term partnership and at the time of the review were at an advanced stage of moving towards a merger to form a single Trust with two hospitals. The preferred model for the partnership is full clinical integration.
in 2017 the East of England Clinical Senate was asked to provide independent clinical advice on the proposals for the initial integration of services in six clinical areas – cardiology, endoscopy, oncology, stoke, trauma & orthopaedics and urology.
