FOI 0166 2019/20: Suspension/Closure of Acute Services

Freedom of Information Request: 0166 2019/20

1) How many of your acute services or units (if any) had to be suspended or closed to new admissions in 2016, 2017 & 2018? Please name the service/unit.

2) What was the duration of each suspension/closure?

3) What was the reason for each suspension/closure?

There is no record of any acute services being closed/suspended to new admissions in 2016, 2017 or 2018 within the Trust.

However, there have been a number of wards, or beds within wards, closed to admissions for short periods of time due to the needs of infection prevention and control (IP&C) at various points during this period. Alternative arrangements for the admission of acute patients have been made on each occasion within the organisation.
