NHS Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group Annual General Meeting – Thursday 10 September 2015
Members of the public from Calderdale are invited to learn more about the work of their local NHS clinical commissioning group (CCG) at its Annual General Meeting.
NHS Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group’s AGM is being held at The Shay Stadium, Shaw Hill, Halifax, West Yorkshire, HX1 2YS, on Thursday 10 September from 6.00pm-8.00pm. Free parking is available at The Shay Stadium for all attending.
The evening will start with a marketplace event where delegates can meet members of the Governing Body and learn more about the work of the CCG and other local health and social care organisations from the public and third sectors.
If you would like to attend, to help the CCG plan the event effectively please register in advance by emailing CCG.firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01422 307400 .
The formal meeting, which runs from 7.00pm – 8.00pm, will include presentations reflecting on progress made during the past year as the lead commissioner for health services across Calderdale. The AGM will also look to the future, focusing on the benefits that are being brought about by the CCG’s Care Closer to Home programme, which is giving people in Calderdale access to the care they need in their localities, whether this be at home or in the community, and reducing the need to go to hospital for treatment.
There will be an opportunity at the end of the meeting to ask questions, and for people to meet the Governing Body team.
Dr Matt Walsh, Chief Officer Calderdale CCG, said: “Over the past year, through Care Closer to Home, we’ve laid the foundations for the continued improvement of healthcare services in Calderdale. Now we’re beginning to see the benefits in terms of patients’ journeys through the health system, savings in healthcare spending and reductions in hospital admissions.
“The AGM is an opportunity for the CCG to highlight the successes of Care Closer to Home and the partnerships the CCG has formed with healthcare providers from across the public, private and third sectors, and answer questions from the public about the changing way healthcare is being provided in Calderdale.
“I’m looking forward to members of the public joining us for what I’m sure will be an interesting and entertaining evening, and I hope to see lots of people there.”
Questions for the CCG’s Governing Body must be submitted in advance of the meeting, and sent to CCG.email@example.com before 5.00pm on Tuesday 8 September.
Refreshments will be available.
