Future local hospital services
Our case for change is a document that looks at the current challenges being faced by our local hospitals. It identifies problems being faced and gives a summary of why change is required across Central Lancashire. It explores how our hospitals, in particular the urgent and emergency care services, are performing.
A model of care describes the way health and care services should be delivered in the future.
The Our Health Our Care (OHOC) model of care describes how different health and social care services should work together across Central Lancashire to have “one vision” for future hospital services with everyone working together to make happen.
To achieve this vision, the Model of Care describes how those types of services provided by hospitals like A&E, and planned care services such as surgery, should look in the future.
