Public invited to find out more about health services in Warwickshire North
Posted on 11 Jul 2018
Members of the public are invited to attend NHS Warwickshire North’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) between 10am and 12pm at the C.H.E.S.S Centre, 460 Cedar Road, Camp Hill, Nuneaton, CV10 9DN.
NHS Warwickshire North Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is responsible for planning and buying health care services in Nuneaton, Bedworth and the surrounding areas. They do this from an allocation of £238 million to support approximately 190,250 people who live in the two areas
This year’s AGM will give attendees an insight into how that money has been used to benefit patients, and outline the CCG’s goals for the future. Presentations will be made by CCG Chair, Dr Deryth Stevens and Accountable Officer Andrea Green, summarising the achievements, challenges and developments from the past year.
Dr Deryth Stevens, local GP and Chair of Coventry and Rugby CCG, said: “Our AGM is for anyone who interested in local NHS services. It gives members of the public a chance to come along and find out more about the local health services, and speak directly to the people responsible for planning these services.”
Attendees will hear about how the CCG has worked with the voluntary sector to promote healthy living and support people living with diabetes and cancer. They will also hear about some of the work the CCG has done to support patients at the end of their lives and how introducing “care navigators” has improved the lives of local patients.
There will also be a chance for attendees to get involved and share their ideas on how the CCG should deliver services in the future. This will include a Q&A session where members of the public will be able to ask questions directly to senior health managers and clinicians.
