Councillor Andrews explained that she had received several phone calls from residents who required chemotherapy treatment at Shotley Bridge Hospital and had been advised that they may have to travel to Darlington Hospital. The Associate Director Lead explained that whilst there had been some temporary changes to services, he was not aware of this issue and agreed to make enquiries and report back to Councillor Andrews.


The Principal Overview and Scrutiny Officer informed the Committee that an invitation had recently been received from County Durham and Darlington Foundation Trust inviting Members to join in marking the creation of a memorial at The University Hospital of North Durham, dedicated to former patients who had donated organs and tissue after their death and their families who found the courage to agree to their loved ones decision. He advised that details of the unveiling ceremony would be distributed to AWH OSC and the CYP OSC and stated that Members would need to book a place if they wanted to attend the ceremony.
