The Governing Body of NHS Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale Clinical Commissioning Group (HMR CCG) is meeting at Number One Riverside on Friday 21 September and members of the public are encouraged to attend.
This meeting, being held 10.30am-12.30pm, is where official CCG business is discussed and formal decisions are made about everything from policies to which health services will be commissioned.
Public questions are welcome and can either be submitted in advance, through the online form on the CCG’s website or asked during the open questions slot at the beginning of each meeting. We would ask people who have questions to ask at the meeting to arrive half an hour before the meeting, at 10am, so we are able to accurately capture the question as well as contact details to ensure a full response is provided. Our engagement lead will be available to discuss any other queries.
Please report to reception on arrival at Number One Riverside. It is requested that anyone submitting questions, in advance of the Governing Body meeting, does so at least 24 hours before the meeting commences. This will allow sufficient time for the question to be picked up and processed, before the meeting takes place.
The meeting takes place as follows:
Date: Friday 21 September 2018
Venue: Training and Conference Suite, Number One Riverside, Smith St, Rochdale
At this meeting among the topics that Governing Body members will be discussing is the Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) Annual Report 2018. Board members will also be covering corporate reports including Quality and Safeguarding, Performance and Finance, and hearing updates from Governing Body Sub-Committees.
Dr Chris Duffy, HMR CCG Chair and local GP said: “Our Governing Body meetings are held in public so local people can attend and see how decisions about healthcare in Rochdale borough are made. Public questions are an important element of our meetings, so if you have a question please do submit it and 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 and decisions made.”
The agenda and papers for the meeting, responses to previous public questions and meeting schedules can also be found on the Governing Body page of our website.
HMR CCG Governing Body meetings are held bi-monthly and the next one will be on Friday 16 November 2018 at Number One Riverside.
