Calderdale’s health and care services will come together to reflect on the past year at NHS Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group’s (CCG) annual general meeting on Thursday 18 July.
The event takes place from 6:00pm – 8:15pm at The Shay Stadium, Halifax, and is an opportunity for people who live and work in Calderdale to see how effective partnership working between health commissioners, service providers and organisations from the voluntary and community sector is improving health and care services in the area.
The evening starts with a health marketplace event from 6:00pm-7:00pm, with information stalls from organisations responsible for Calderdale’s health and social care services, including NHS Calderdale CCG, local NHS trusts and Calderdale Council, as well as informative and interactive stalls from voluntary and community organisations which provide health and care support services.
At 7:00pm NHS Calderdale CCG will present a review of its activities in 2018/19, looking at the successes and challenges in commissioning Calderdale’s health services over the past year, and setting out plans for the future.
Dr Steven Cleasby, Clinical Chair of NHS Calderdale CCG
“Our AGM is an opportunity for us to share the success we’ve seen in improving health and care services in Calderdale with the people who use and rely on them, give people the opportunity to ask questions about their NHS and spell out our vision for the future.
“It’s also a chance for us to thank the providers, who deliver vital NHS Services in Calderdale, and all of the members of staff in the CCGs’ 25 member GP practices, who are the face of the NHS for the majority of people in our area.
“I’m looking forward to members of the public joining us for what I’m sure will be an interesting and informative evening, and I hope to see many people there.”
Dr Matt Walsh, Chief Officer of Calderdale CCG, said
“At last year’s event I made a commitment that we would work with partners to address the emotional wellbeing of children and young people, focussing upon ASD as our first challenge.
“This year I’ll report on improvements have been made to the services that support these young people in Calderdale, but there’s still much to be done and there is always a need for improvement and change in our health services.
“We’ll also set out our stall for the year to come, and address some of the areas we’re looking to focus on with our partners to make Calderdale a better, and more healthy place to live, work and be.”
