NHS Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale Clinical Commissioning Group (HMR CCG) is holding its next Governing Body meeting on Friday 16 December, and local people are invited to attend.


Held at Number One Riverside 10.30am -11am, the CCG Governing Body meeting is where official CCG business is discussed and decisions are made about the planning and funding of local health services.


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 9.30am, 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 16 December

Time: 10.30am-11am

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

At this meeting, attendees can expect to hear updates on Emergency Planning, Resilience and Response Assurance and the Primary Care Commissioning Committee Summary Report.


Dr Chris Duffy, HMR CCG Chair and local GP said: “Our Governing Body meetings are a fantastic opportunity for local people to see for themselves how we plan and purchase health services in their area.


“It’s important that patients and people from across the borough have their say and get closer to the decision making process. As such, we encourage members of the public to attend our Governing Body meetings to find out what we do and help shape healthcare for Rochdale borough residents.


“If you are unable to attend, why not follow our Twitter feed? We’ll be tweeting live from the meeting to provide an overview of items being discussed and decisions made. Follow us @NHSHMR”.


The agenda and papers for the meeting will be available on the ‘About us’ section of our website, in advance of the meeting.
