NHS Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale Clinical Commissioning Group’s (HMR CCG) Governing Body meeting is taking place on Friday 15th July 2016 and members of the public are invited to attend.

The CCG Governing Body meeting is held at Number One Riverside and is where discussions and decisions take place about official CCG business, and the planning and funding of local healthcare services. Discussions include everything from current policies to new projects and which local 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 next meeting takes place as follows:

Date: Friday 15th July

Time: 10.30am – 12.30pm

Venue: Number One Riverside, Smith Street, Rochdale, OL16 1XU

At this meeting, attendees can expect to hear updates on Integrated Elective Care Pathway, System Transformation Committee, our Test Bed project and CCG locality reports and member feedback for Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale East and West.

Dr Chris Duffy, local GP and Chair of NHS HMR CCG said: As an accountable organisation, we have a duty to make sure what we do and how we make our decisions is accessible to the people of Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale. After all it’s your health services we are planning. We regularly welcome several members of the public to our meetings, and I would encourage anyone who would like to find out more about what the Clinical Commissioning Group is about, and how decisions are made, to attend one of our meetings.”

To help make sure decisions and comments made at the meeting are accessible to local people, we tweet live from all Governing Body meetings. You can follow the CCG, and Governing Body meeting proceedings, on Twitter at @NHSHMR.
