Chase Community Hospital - The Future

A Panel will take questions on the future plans for Chase Community Hospital. The Panel membership will be:


·                    Lisa Medway, Project Manager, Chase Community Hospital;

·                    Sara Tiller, Chief Development Officer, South East Hampshire CCG

·                    Dr Anthony Leung, GP at the Badgerswood and Forest Surgeries, in Headley and Whitehill and Bordon; and

·                    Mr Tim Houghton, Chief Executive, Community First, HEH




The Chairman introduced Lisa Medway, Project Manager, Chase Community Hospital, Sara Tiller, Chief Development Officer, South East Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Dr Anthony Leung, GP at Badgerswood Surgery in Headley and Forest Surgery in Whitehill and Bordon and Tim Houghton, Chief Executive, Community First, Havant & East Hampshire.


Sara Tiller gave an overview of the last year since her previous update in October 2013. She explained that all the GP practices in the area were members of the South East Hampshire CCG. The Integrated Care Team for the area now operated out of Chase Community Hospital and the CCG had commissioned 4 beds at Wenham Holt Nursing & Residential Home in Liss. They had received positive feedback from the steering group and local people on the Integrated Care Team. The nursing home had received two visits/inspections from the CCG’s Quality Team, who were happy with the services being provided.


In respect of stage two of the development, this would cover the redevelopment of the interior of the hospital including improvements to the existing outpatients department, Adult Mental Health Services and altering the old wards into an area for two GP surgeries.


The progress of the development had been complicated by the ownership of the hospital. Since March 2014 it had been owned by NHS Property Services, who acted as the landlord of the building. The CCG did not have the statutory powers to own the estate. In addition the CCG did not have the capital allocation for estate development. The CCG had two partners, the landlord - NHS Property Services and NHS England who held the capital funding.


Some new processes had been developed in the last year and the consequence of this was a delay to the second stage of the programme. She and colleagues were working hard to resolve the issues that had arisen and they would continue to work to attract new services to Chase Community Hospital.


Any appropriate new service contract for South Eastern Hampshire now stipulated that there must be a service at Chase and this included a new Musculoskeletal Service (MSK), and Community Ophthalmology Service, which would be coming to the hospital shortly. Other services which had increased were community maternity  and the drug and alcohol service for adults.


She explained that the original plan had been to attract two GP surgeries to the hospital. In order to move the project forward the CCG’s Governing Body had agreed that the CCG should explore two options:


·                    The first was to work up a plan to develop the site with one GP surgery.

·                    The second was to investigate an option to phase the project and leave the GP Practice element until later in the development.


They were also now working very closely with the District and Town Councils on the regeneration work in the town, and were working with the voluntary sector to attract complementary services to be delivered out of the hospital. The voluntary sector were very keen on this model of care..
