Launch of public conversations regarding Shotley Bridge Community Hospital

NHS County Durham CCG has launched further public conversations in relation to the clinical model for services at Shotley Bridge Community Hospital. This engagement and the opportunities for people to join the conversation will run until the end of March 2021.

During this period of engagement the CCG want to talk to people and find out their views on how future services will be delivered by a new clinical model that has been developed by working with partners in the hospital trust.
