NHS Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale Clinical Commissioning Group’s (HMR CCG) Governing Body meeting is taking place on Friday 21st October 2016.
The CCG Governing Body meeting will be held at Number One Riverside but this month there is a change to the normal structure. The Governing Body meeting will be from 8.30am – 9.30am with a presentation in Public from Sir David Dalton, Chief Executive, Pennine Acute and Salford Royal trusts in relation to The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust’s Care Quality Commission Improvement Action plan and the measures the Trust has put in place to provide safer, more reliable services across its four hospitals including at Rochdale Infirmary and community services.
The presentation in public will then be followed at 9.45am by a very short Governing Body meeting which will close at 10.15am. Governing Body meetings are 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.
At this meeting, attendees can expect to hear updates on finance, planning requirements and children’s and young people’s partnership.
The next meeting takes place as follows:
Date: Friday 21st October 2016
Time: 8.30am – 10.15am
Venue: Number One Riverside, Smith Street, Rochdale, OL16 1XU (attendees will need to report to the rear entrance of Number One Riverside prior to the meeting starting at 8.30am).
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. We are pleased to welcome Sir David Dalton to our October meeting. Since the CQC inspection in February and the published report in August we have been working closely with partners and Sir David and the teams to develop a long term solution and fully support the PAHT CQC Improvement Action plan.”
