RES­I­DENTS are in­vited to at­tend the next meet­ing of health bosses for Heywood, Mid­dle­ton and Rochdale to­mor­row (Fri­day May 19).

The gov­ern­ing body of the bor­ough’s Clin­i­cal Com­mis­sion­ing Group (HMR CCG) is meet­ing at Num­ber One River­side be­tween 10.30am and 12.30pm.

Among the items due to be dis­cussed are cor­po­rate and HR poli­cies; qual­ity and per­for­mance re­ports; the 2017 an­nual re­port and the lo­cal­ity plan and car­diac re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion mo­bil­i­sa­tion pro­gramme.

Mem­bers of the public are also in­vited to ask ques­tions about lo­cal health ser­vices, which can ei­ther be sub­mit­ted online in ad­vance or asked dur­ing the open ques­tions slot at the start of the meet­ing.

Any­one sub­mit­ting ques­tions in ad­vance is asked to do so at least 24 hours be­fore the meet­ing com­mences and to ar­rive half an hour be­fore the meet­ing be­gins.

Chris Duffy, chair of HMR CCG, said: “Our gov­ern­ing body meet­ings are a great op­por­tu­nity for res­i­dents to see for them­selves how we plan and pur­chase health ser­vices in Heywood, Mid­dle­ton and Rochdale and we en­cour­age lo­cal peo­ple to at­tend.

“Public ques­tions are an im­por­tant part of our meet­ings and I’d urge any­one with a ques­tion to sub­mit it so we can re­spond.

“If you can’t make it to the meet­ings fol­low us on Twit­ter @NHSHMR for live tweets giv­ing an over­view of items be­ing dis­cussed an de­ci­sions made.”
