Planning for the future of Midlothian Community Hospital

Midlothian Community Hospital

If you’ve got something to say about the development of Midlothian Community Hospital then come along to a special ‘Hot Topics’ public meeting being held by Midlothian Health and Social Care Partnership where you can make your voice heard.

As part of the integration of health and social care services, Midlothian Health and Social Care Partnership want to speak to people about how to develop the Community Hospital so that it offers the right clinics and services for the community.

‘Hot Topics’ sessions have already been held on the issues of access to primary care services such as GPs and community nurses, and on improving peer support and self-management. There was a good turnout for both meetings and the discussions were very productive.

Allister Short, Head of Health, said: “Through engaging and interactive conversation, listening to other people’s points of view, and being open to each other’s ideas, we hope to create better health and care services for everyone.

“We want Midlothian Community Hospital to be a valuable service to patients and their families and we need the guidance of the local community to ensure this happens. This is part of our aim to offer services closer to home where possible.”

The meeting is on Thursday, 28 January, from 2pm to 4pm at the McSence Conference Centre, in Mayfield. Spaces are limited, so, to book a place, please contact:
