Consultations on Children’s Surgery and Hyper Acute Stroke services across South Yorkshire

12 Dec

Have Your Say on on Children’s Surgery and Hyper Acute Stroke Services

People living in Barnsley, Bassetlaw, Chesterfield, Doncaster, Rotherham, Sheffield and Wakefield are being invited to share their thoughts on proposals to change our region’s services for:

  • Children’s surgery and anaesthesia
  • Hyper acute stroke, where patients are treated and given care for up to the first 72 hours after having a stroke.

Depending on where you live, some patients have better experiences and access to services than others – and doctors, nurses and healthcare experts all agreed that this shouldn’t happen – and have come together to change it.

Between Monday 3 October 2016 and Friday 20 January 2017, members of the public are invited to share their views on the proposed option for the future of these services – with a final decision expected to be made by clinical commissioners in February.

Update on Central Library Public Meetings

12 Dec
Sheffield City Council has promised that there will always be a Central Library in the city centre. Earlier this week two public meetings were held about proposals for the Central Library and Graves Art Gallery. The meetings saw more than 200 people discuss how the council is considering leasing the Surrey Street building to create the city’s first five star hotel.
The other promises made, should the deal go ahead, were:
  • Not to explore a Private Finance Initiative (PFI) arrangement to finance any new Central Library building.
  • To protect the existing building through a ‘triple lock’ of planning law, listing requirements and controls.
  • A new Graves Art Gallery in the existing building, guaranteeing public access for future generations.

Activity Sheffield – Proposed changes to the current service

Sheffield City Council continues to face significant financial challenges as the Government further reduces its grant to the local authority. Extremely difficult decisions have had to be made over the past six years about services that the people of Sheffield care so much about. Sadly due to the necessity for further cuts in the coming year, Activity Sheffield in its current form is no longer financially viable. More information is available on the attached letter. You can provide feedback by contacting Activity Sheffield through letter to; Jo Pearce, Activity Sheffield, Moorfoot Building, Sheffield S1 4PL, alternatively you can email  Please note that the deadline for them to receive your feedback is Friday 23 December 2016.

Central Library & Graves Art Gallery: Second public meeting planned 16th Dec 2016

2 Dec

Due to high demand a second public meeting has been planned to update people about proposals for Sheffield’s Central Library and Graves Art Gallery.

Last week it was announced that Sheffield City Council is considering leasing the Surrey Street building to create the city’s first five star hotel, as the cost of repairs and upkeep is rapidly becoming unaffordable.

Almost all places have been booked for the first meeting which takes place from 5.30pm to 7.30pm on 6 December in Sheffield Town Hall.

A second meeting has therefore been planned for Friday, 16 December from 4pm to 6pm at the Town Hall. The meeting is likely to be popular, so pre-booking is essential.
