How we developed the options

How we developed the options for this consultation

We worked with local people, partners and clinicians as well as looking at research, feedback from local people and best practice to shape our proposed model of care and develop some options for how to best deliver this. We were careful to make sure that all our options were clinically safe and based on evidence and research. You can read more about this work in our Pre-Consultation Business Case.

We then worked with local people, partners and clinicians to agree a set of criteria to shorten the list. This list was agreed at a meeting common in public of the CCGs’ governing bodies on 4 December 2018 when they approved the Pre-Consultation Business Case and agreed to go to consultation. You can read more in the Governing Body papers from this meeting.

This shortlist are the options we consulted on.
