Further developments over the closure of Bootham Park Hospital

October 16, 2015

Today Julian met with Alistair Burt the Minister of State for Community and Social Care, to discuss the closure of Bootham Park Hospital and what steps should now be taken.

Julian stated that “today’s meeting was an opportunity to raise many of the concerns I have received from constituents over patient care and the continuation of Bootham Hospital’s facilities, and to press the Minister over the long-term solution for a new purpose built mental health facility that will be able to provide for the needs of the local area.”

Julian welcomed the Ministers support to help stating “the Minister was clear that the long term needs of mental health provision in the area demands urgent action, and he assured me that he will be keeping a close eye on developments and is prepared to intervene if local providers struggle to step up to the plate.

The Minister will now be writing to the Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) asking them to produce a long term solution with the NHS Trust for a new facility in York, and in the meantime he also hopes to see the reopening of outpatient and ‘place of safety’ facilities.

Julian will continue to help anyone who approaches him over this matter and would like to remind constituents that the NHS Trust has set up a dedicated 24/7 helpline for anyone with concerns, and the number once again is 01904 610700.
