The Governing Body of NHS Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale Clinical Commissioning Group (HMR CCG) will hold its January meeting at Rochdale Town Hall, on Friday 19 January, and local people are invited 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 Rochdale Town Hall. It is requested that anyone submitting questions online, 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 19 January 2018
Venue: Rochdale Town Hall
At this meeting, attendees can expect to hear updates on the Sustainable Development Strategy Plan; the Outcomes Commissioning Framework; Declarations of Healthy Weight; as well as progress of the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services.
Dr Chris Duffy, HMR CCG Chair and local GP said: “I’d encourage Rochdale borough residents to make 2018 the year they get involved in local healthcare by attending our Governing Body meetings – they are a great opportunity to see first-hand how we plan and buy local healthcare services.
“If you are unable to attend, you can follow our Twitter feed for live updates during the meeting. We’ll be tweeting an overview of items being discussed and decisions made. Follow us @NHSHMR.”
