Clinical Commissioning Group Referral
As a member of the Dorset Health Scrutiny Committee meeting in October, Liberal Democrats Nick Ireland and Beryl Ezzard were instrumental in overturning the decision 'not to refer' as recommended by the Task & Finish Group. This resulted in a 6 to 4 vote in favour of referring the decision to the Secretary of State for Health.
The four voting against referring the decision were all conservatives.
The two points which were put forward to accompany the referrals:-
- Further scrutiny of the travel times from Poole Hospital to Royal Bournemouth Hospital
- No local alternative provision for the closure of beds in community hospitals (16 in Portland, 22 in Ferndown and 16 in Wareham Hospital)
