HOSPITAL staff have got the chance to make their voices heard about whether acute and emergency care services should be concentrated at Lister or the QEII.

The East and North Herts NHS Trust is working with the Primary Care Trusts to give staff a significant role in informing and influencing the final decision which is expected to go to public consultation in February next year.

A planned discussion session will provide a chance for staff to ask questions, look at outline proposals for both Lister and the QEII, talk about any issues or concerns they may have about consolidating services, as well as give opinions on the hospital they think should be chosen and highlight issues that need to be taken into consideration.

All staff members, including employees working for services contracted to the Trust, are invited to the Rowan room in Lister's Education Centre, between 8am and 8pm on December 11.
