A consultation is currently underway. The consultation document sets out potential improvements in clinical outcomes for patients under three different options. This includes a new specialist emergency care hospital.

The potential impact of the proposals on accessibility and travel times has been analysed as part of the consultation process and further detail can be found at the following link:
