1. In order to tackle the challenges BLMK hospitals face, do you feel that far-reaching change is needed in the way BLMK deliver secondary (hospital-based) care? This box offers five answers, please select ONE.

2. Do you think BLMK clinicians have identified the right six focus areas? {1 Emergency care; 2 Planned care; 3 Centres of excellence; 4 Care closer to home; 5 Maternity care; 6 Paediatric services}, for the transformation of hospital-based care in BLMK? This box offers five answers, please select ONE.

>

3. What do you think of the ideas BLMK have presented for delivering sustainable emergency care? The boxes offer five answers, please select ONE in each case.
a. To run some services from fewer sites;
b. Creating a telephone-based Clinical Hub especially overnight;
c. Single point of access (SPoA) for people to call for unscheduled care and to book GP appointments;
d. Rapid access care close to home, including GP out of hours services and urgent paramedic support.

>

4. What do you think of BLMK ideas for planned care? Should planned care be provided in separate locations from emergency care? This box offers five answers, please select ONE.

>

5. What do you think of the idea of creating centres of excellence for certain specialist services? BLMK would offer a good basic service at all three hospitals, but would then provide certain aspects in just one place. This might be highly specialist diagnostics at one site, emergency services at another site and planned procedures at a centre of excellence on the third. This box offers five answers, please select ONE.

>

6. What do you think about the ideas BLMK have presented for providing more care closer to home? Should BLMK provide diagnostics and outpatient services in local community or hospital settings as close to home as possible, with patients then travelling to a centre of excellence at one of BLMK's local hospitals for surgery? This box offers five answers, please select ONE.

>

7. What do you think about the ideas BLMK have presented for maternity care? Should BLMK concentrate services associated with high risk births on fewer hospital sites and not have full consultant-led obstetrics units at all three hospitals? This may mean some women travelling further. This box offers five answers, please select ONE.

>

8. What do you think of the ideas BLMK have presented for paediatric services? Should BLMK care for the most unwell children concentrated on one or two sites and by focusing high risk emergency paediatric care in one location create a centre of excellence? This box offers five answers, please select ONE.
