Proper planning needed for hospital
The NHS Newark Healthcare Review promised in 2010 that “the vast majority of patients (85%) would still be treated at Newark Hospital; other patients would be taken directly to more appropriate facilities by ambulance.’’

Revenue is generated for a hospital trust when an ambulance delivers a patient to an emergency department. Additional money is collected if that patient is admitted to a ward.

Sherwood Forest Hospital Foundation Trust (SFHFT) is losing much-needed revenue as many Newark patients with the less serious emergencies, the green cases, are being treated in hospitals outside SFHFT, such as in Lincolnshire.

The system design for the healthcare provision at Newark is flawed.
