Cannock Hospital – Community Asset Transfer Business Case
In the light of work being undertaken to examine the sustainability of healthcare services in Mid Staffordshire, Cannock Chase MP Aidan Burley and the Cannock Working Group have put forward a proposal to transfer the assets of Cannock Hospital to local community ownership. The proposal relates to the building and grounds of the hospital, not patient services.
Monitor has appointed a team of experts to consider options to guarantee the long term provision of services for the local population and has agreed to look into the feasibility of this proposal as one of these options. The work of the team is still underway and no decision on preferred options has yet been made.
Chair and Chief Executive Dr David Bennett set out Monitor's view in a letter to Mr Burley.
