Pennine Acute Hospitals

As The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust continues to make improvements following the very disappointing CQC report last year the new Chief Executive Sir David Dalton has announced a further £20.5 million is to be invested in frontline services from 2017-8. In addition to this £10 million will be spent on capital expenditure to improve North Manchester and Royal Oldham Hospitals.

The additional revenue resources will be used to recruit 35 more doctors and more than 300 more nursing and midwifery staff. There will be more money for IT, staff training and development. Plus more money for medical and clinical equipment. This together with revised governance and management arrangements will I hope mean that we can look forward to a much improved position the next time the CQC report on the Trust

  1. Where do the nurses and doctors come from? It takes six years to train a doctor and three years for a nurse plus mentorship and specialty training. Anything for mental health services? How much of this is recycled money? No mention of of the promised £350 million, promised by Mr Farage st.am.

  2. Dear Mr Nuttall, Is this a concentration of money for improvements from closures in the area? It is always wonderful to learn of improved services, but journey time can severely can increase risks, and of course isolate family members across greater distrance at vulnerable times. There is a much bigger, intrinsic national debate to be had about our NHS and how to properly fund it in a very different age from its inception. I believe care for sustaining the life and health of our families would trump party tribalism. I wish the Conservative Party would be the party to initiate it. With kind regards, Sandra Robinson.

  3. Dear Mr. Nuttall,

    It is very good news for all who use Pennine Acute hospitals. Can you confirm if the £20.5 million is new money and not old money taken from other areas of our trust that also applies to an addition of £10 million that will be spent on capital expenditure to improve North Manchester and Royal Oldham Hospital’s? If North Manchester leaves out trust should not the extra money be spent on the three remaining trust hospitals? Why not let the new ideas regime in Manchester support with their money the £10 million for North Manchester General Hospital and give the three remaining hospitals in the trust the £10 million pounds?

    North Manchester would require far more than £10 million pounds more like £50 to 100 million pounds to update it to the 21st century standards, Sir David Dalton must know that by know.

    Kind regards,

    Yours sincerely,

    Victor Alan Davies BL8 2JQ
