Reconfiguration of Hospital Services

The health services in some regions are undergoing a comprehensive reconfiguration process which will involve change for all staff working in the region and for those accessing services.

The key end point for the reconfiguration process is that service users will benefit from having a unified healthcare system, integrated with all other elements of the health service.

Public Health professionals play an active role in supporting service planning and reconfiguration of hospital services.
