In May 2015 a consultation on the plans for the new East Lothian Community Hospital took place with the public in East Lothian. Public events were held across the county. Other group consultation events were also held with a number of community groups. The community group consultation events were targeted at people in the community who would be less likely to attend the public events.
 
There were two parts to this consultation:
 
  1. We asked your views on the draft design plans for the new hospital as part of the planning process. A report was written giving details of how your feedback influenced the plans for the hospital. This is the Pre-application Consultation Report (PAC). The PAC report was submitted along with the design plans for the new hospital to East Lothian council planning department in October 2015. 
  2. We also asked for your views on specific aspects of the design and use of the new hospital. These were: reception and public areas, quiet space, hospital grounds, how community groups might use the non clinical space ‘out of hours’ and the grounds. 
This report contains details of what people said when asked about specific aspects of the design and use of the new hospital.
