Members of the public are invited to NHS Harrogate and Rural District Clinical Commissioning Group's (CCG) Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 1 August 2019.
The event will follow the CCG's Governing Body meeting at Dower House Hotel, Bond End, Knaresborough HG5 9AL and will begin at 13.00 pm.
The AGM will include discussion of the challenges faced by the NHS over the last 12 months, local health spending, developments in the area and the CCG's priorities over the next year. There will also be an opportunity at the end of the meeting to ask questions and have an informal chat with Governing Body members and staff from the CCG.
Amanda Bloor, Single Accountable Officer for the Three North Yorkshire CCGs, said: “There have been a number of challenges faced by the NHS this year. However, we have seen some good progress in the work of the CCG, for instance work around the support for patients with mental health issues and our continued campaigning to reduce medicine waste and encourage self-care.’
“The AGM is a great opportunity for us to hear from members of the public and get opinions on the work of the CCG and how we could improve our services. It is also a chance to provide local patients with more information on the services we commission first hand.
“We understand the importance of public engagement and hope the meeting will encourage patients to share ideas and feedback to the CCG Governing Body. We look forward seeing new faces and welcoming back others.”
The AGM is open to everyone, but if you intend to come along, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Questions can also be submitted beforehand to email@example.com or sent to: Executive Assistant, NHS Harrogate and Rural District CCG, 1 Grimbald Crag Court, St James Business Park, Knaresborough, HG5 8QB no later than Friday 26 July.
