Stay in touch with your local NHS at East and North Hertfordshire CCG’s Annual General Meeting
Extending access to GP services and reducing your risk of dementia are just two of the topics on the agenda for East and North Hertfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group’s Annual General Meeting next month.
Members of the public are warmly invited to the event on Thursday 21 September 2017, from 12pm to 4.30pm at Focolare Centre, Parkway, Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire AL8 6JG.
The CCG is the local NHS organisation responsible for commissioning (planning, designing and paying for) healthcare services for 580,000 Hertfordshire residents. The services the CCG commissions include both mental and physical health and community and hospital services.
Dr Hari Pathmanathan, a Hertfordshire GP and CCG Chair, encouraged members of the public to attend the AGM if they have an interest in local health services:
“Our AGM is a really good opportunity to find out what has been achieved in the past year, how NHS funds have been used, and how you can get involved in helping to improve health and wellbeing in east and north Hertfordshire.”
As well as presentations and question and answer sessions, there will be a number of interactive workshops to take part in.
The programme for the free public meeting includes:
- a healthy lunch
- presentations on the past year and the CCG’s emerging health and care improvement priorities
- break-out sessions on extending access to GP services, cancer pathways and diagnosis, personal health budgets and reducing your risk of dementia
- Led by local GPs, East and North Hertfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group plans, designs and buys health services for 580,000 people in Hertfordshire, and monitors the quality and effectiveness of those services.
