Review of Unplanned Health Care services in Calderdale

The Report recommends a public consultation on the following four options for future unplanned health care services. The fourth option is preferred.

1. Commission walk in centre provision to replicate the existing arrangements

(Commission a walk in service: 8am to 7pm Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm Saturday, and 8am to 6pm Sunday at Park Ward; and 8am to 7pm Monday to Friday, and 8am to 6pm Saturday in Todmorden Ward – in line with existing arrangements).

2. Commission walk in centre provision to replicate the interim walk in service

(Commission a walk-in service at weekends and Bank Holidays only (8am to 8pm) in Todmorden and Park Wards – in line with the planned interim service)

3. De-commission the walk-in centres and do nothing else

(De-commission the walk-in centre provision in Todmorden and Park Wards entirely and do not replace them with any other service. Use the money saved to fund other services).

4. Develop an unplanned care offer for individual localities within Calderdale in line with identified health needs (Develop a new model of unplanned care in localities in Calderdale – based on the needs of each individual locality. This option would include improving access to primary care and community-based services, and would include re-investment of funding currently invested in walk-in services as well as other additional investment…)
