Summary of report content

Following the decision in July 2012 not to proceed with building a new hospital in Clevedon, North Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) established a new project looking at proposals for commissioning future clinical services at the existing Clevedon Community Hospital. Healthwatch North Somerset held a meeting in relation Clevedon Community Hospital. The meeting was held in Clevedon Community Centre at 1.30pm. Clevedon was chosen as the venue for the meeting as it is the location of the community hospital. The Healthwatch North Somerset Clevedon Community Hospital meeting indicated there was some public confusion about the proposals for the future of the hospital and fears were voiced that the hospital would be closed. There was a strong emotional tie to the hospital from Clevedon residents and many attendees at the meeting shared their personal experiences of the hospital. Healthwatch North Somerset have sought to gain the views of non-Clevedon residents as they may have differing priorities. After the meeting, the local papers and the Bristol Post reported the meeting; public letters were also printed.
