Wessex Clinical Senate. Recommendation on Vascular Surgery in South East Hampshire

The Council was asked by NHS England (Wessex) to consider three options for reconfiguration of vascular surgery in South East Hampshire:
Option 1 Maintain two independent vascular centres
Option 2 Network model as described in the NHS Contract for Specialised Vascular Services with all inpatient surgery at University Hospital Southampton N.B.
This was the preferred option of NHS England (Wessex)
Option 3 Move all surgery from Portsmouth Hospitals Trust to University Hospitals Southampton
The Senate Council was asked to review these options for vascular services against national and local guidance and to advise on the potential impact on patient outcomes, co-dependencies, co-location of services and standards for inter-organisational and inter-agency collaboration.
