PRESS RELEASE

16 August 2018

 

Sharing successes and plans for future health services

 

Health commissioners are inviting South Cheshire and Vale Royal residents to come to a joint Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Thursday 6 September.

NHS South Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS Vale Royal CCG work very closely together to ensure that local health and social care services are accessible for patients and are joined up as much as possible. Through a joint AGM, local people can hear about the performance and achievements across the whole area over the past 12 months as well as having the chance to give their views about their latest work to shape services.

Dr Andrew Wilson, GP and Chair of NHS South Cheshire CCG, said: “We look forward to meeting our patients and local residents at this event. Mental health and cancer services are just two of the information stalls at our marketplace. There will also be information about the different ways you can get involved with the CCGs’ work.”

Terry Savage, Lay Member for NHS Vale Royal CCG, added: “This is your chance to ask us questions about the work we have been doing, see how we have spent our money, and let us know what you think about our plans for the future.”

Members of the governing body and executive team will be on-hand to answer any questions. Copies of the annual report and accounts for 2017/18 for both of the CCGs will also be available.

The event is being held from 6pm to 8pm at Winsford Academy, Grange Lane, Winsford, CW7 2BT.

Anyone is welcome to attend but in order to have an idea of numbers, please book your place online at www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/ccg-joint-agm-tickets-48725864372 or call 01270 275303.

Notes to editors

 

 

About NHS South Cheshire CCG:

 

NHS South Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group’s overall aims are to improve the health of local people, improve the care they receive, as well as their experience of it, and to deliver value for money by using resources effectively. To do this it spends taxpayers’ money on health services for local people. These range from hospital and mental health services to district nursing, health visiting or other community-based teams.

 

The CCG also works with other organisations, such as neighbouring NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups, Cheshire West and Chester Council, Cheshire East Council and voluntary groups, to decide what the health and social care needs are in their areas. To work well, CCGs must take in to account the views of patients, doctors, nurses, NHS managers, hospitals, the Council and others when making decisions about how they want to spend their budget, in areas such as cancer, heart disease, mental health, hospital care, community care and prescribing of medicines.
