Have a Big Chat about your health

Midweek Visiter - - Sandgrounder Showcase -

HEALTH com­mis­sion­ers are invit­ing south Sefton res­i­dents to come to their ‘An­nual Re­view meets Big Chat’ event next week, on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 27.

NHS South Sefton Clin­i­cal Com­mis­sion­ing Group (CCG) is com­bin­ing its an­nual re­view meet­ing with a ‘Big Chat’ style event, and this year will also be cel­e­brat­ing 70 years of the NHS.

So, as well as find­ing out about the CCG’s per­for­mance and achieve­ments over the past 12 months, the event is a chance for res­i­dents to give their views about the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s lat­est work to shape ser­vices.

This year, the event will in­clude a mar­ket­place with a range of health and well­be­ing-re­lated stalls that peo­ple can browse ahead of the start of the main pro­gramme, which will com­bine a mix of pre­sen­ta­tions and dis­cus­sions.

Dr Craig Gillespie, act­ing chair for the CCG, said: “This will be our 10th ‘Big Chat’ event.

“We re­ally value the feed­back and sug­ges­tions we gather from all those who come along, so we hope to wel­come many lo­cal peo­ple to our an­nual re­view.”

He added: “We are also host­ing a mar­ket­place, where col­leagues and part­ners from neigh­bour­ing health or­gan­i­sa­tions will have in­for­ma­tion stalls pro­mot­ing a range of lo­cal health ser­vices.”

Copies of the CCG’s an­nual re­port and ac­counts for 2017-2018 will also be avail­able.

The event be­gins at 1pm with a mar­ket­place and re­fresh­ments, with the main agenda tak­ing place from 2 to 4.30pm at Boo­tle Cricket Club, Wad­ham Road, L20 2DD.

The mar­ket­place and re­fresh­ments will be avail­able from 1pm.

Any­one who would like to come along is asked to con­firm their at­ten­dance, along with any spe­cial re­quire­ments, on 0151 317 8456 or email: south­sefton.ccg@nhs.net
