The Better Care Closer to Home consultation – led by NHS Hardwick Clinical Commissioning Group and NHS North Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group - took place 29 June 2016 – 5 October 2016, with an additional clarification exercise in November, and put forward a number of proposals to make better joined-up care closer to home a reality for many older people in northern Derbyshire.
At the outset of the consultation the two Clinical Commissioning Groups made a number of commitments to the people of northern Derbyshire:
No current service would stop until an alternative is in place
Everyone who needs inpatient care under the proposals put forward would receive it
All NHS-commissioned services to remain free at the point of delivery

The plans were unanimously approved allowing the implementation process to begin.
