Path to Excellence Phase Public Listening Panel

Path to Excellence Phase Public Listening Panel

Posted on behalf of NHS Path to Excellence

Individuals and organisations are invited provide ideas or evidence to the NHS Path to excellence programme


A second public listening panel is giving interested individuals or organisations the opportunity to provide evidence or ideas on solving the challenges facing local NHS hospital services across South Tyneside and Sunderland.


 NHS partner organisations published an updated Draft Case for Change on phase two of the Path to Excellence in February 2019, which builds upon the Draft Case for Change published in July 2018.


It explains the pressures and challenges facing local hospital services in South Tyneside and Sunderland and why services must change, and describes some early thinking and ‘working ideas’ on how some of these issues could be solved.


The Path to Excellence Draft Case for Change is one of three main areas of work across the whole local health and care economy, which will also look at how to transform care outside of hospital and help support local communities to stay fit and well by focussing on prevention.


Clinical design teams led by local doctors, nurses and therapy staff from both hospitals working together over several months have developed some different possible ways services could be organised in order to create the best possible hospital services for the future.


Now, as part of the on-going involvement process to develop solutions, NHS leaders are once again asking interested individuals or organisations if they have key evidence or ideas that the NHS should consider as part of finding future solutions, and the opportunity to present them directly to NHS leaders at a specially arranged public listening panel in June.


Date: Friday 7th June 2019


Time: 10.00am to 12.30pm (depending on uptake)


Venue: Sunderland Bangladeshi International Centre, 30 Tatham Street, Sunderland, SR1 2QD 


The panel will be chaired by Nicholas Duffin, director of The Consultation Institute, an independent, not-for-profit best practice Institute, promoting high-quality public and stakeholder consultation in the public, private and voluntary sectors.


In order to ensure as many people as possible can access the event, it will also be broadcast live on the internet via social media platforms and NHS websites.


Interested parties can book a 30-minute slot at the event which takes place on Friday 7th June between 10am and 12.30pm. 


Participants are asked to submit any written materials three working days in advance, 5pm Monday 3rd June, to allow members of the panel to prepare and to ensure the information is formally received. 


Attendees will have the opportunity to present their evidence and there will be an opportunity for questions from panel members relating to the attendees evidence.


Each group is offered maximum of four places to attend, with one person nominated to act as spokesperson to present the group’s evidence to the panel.


The NHS will draw upon the evidence presented to continue to work with staff and clinical teams on viable solutions to be brought to formal public consultation which is expected later in 2019. This will be a wider public debate on how to create the best possible hospital services for the future to serve local communities.


Phase Two of the Path to Excellence is the final part of the clinical transformation of local hospital services covering the following areas of hospital-based care:



  • Emergency care and acute medicine – the care provided when patients arrive at the Emergency Department or need emergency admission to hospital

  • Emergency surgery - the care provided when patients are admitted to hospital as an emergency and require an immediate operation

  • Planned care (including surgery and outpatients) – the care provided when patients are referred to hospital by their GP for a test, scan, treatment or operation.


To book a time to give evidence at the event, please select a 30 minute slot when registering your details via Eventbrite. 




Detailed information 


Who will attend?
