New Proposals for Newark Hospital

In the wake of the Keogh review Sherwood Forest Hospitals Foundation Trust and the Newark Clinical Commissioning Group have published their proposals for Newark Hospital.

The overwhelming theme that emerged was the need to ensure that Newark Hospital is a vibrant healthcare centre and provided high quality care that was close to home.

How do these proposals meet the aspirations of local people?
