Savings Plan Proposals 2017/18

The Western Trust welcomes the additional money for health and social care in 2017/18. 

 

This means we will be able to remove the high impact savings proposals in our savings plan. The draft plan will be put to our extraordinary Trust Board meeting for approval this Friday 13 October, along with the feedback from our consultation process. It will be recommended that the Trust accept no or low impact proposals in the savings plan.  

The proposals that will no longer be considered include; the temporary reduction in routine elective care, reduction in provision of domiciliary care packages, consolidation of residential and daycare services for older people and the remodelling of neo-natal services at South West Acute Hospital.

The Trust would like to extend its thanks to all of the individuals and groups who took part in the consultation process and made their views known.
