Members of the public are invited to the Annual General Meeting of NHS Scarborough and Ryedale Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) on Wednesday 27 June.
The event will be hosted in the Council Chambers at Scarborough Town Hall from 5pm, with the meeting itself starting at 6.30pm.
Between 5pm and 6.30pm, to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the NHS, there will be a showcase of some of the work and achievements of the NHS over the last 70 years. There will be old school health memorabilia to look at and a number of different presentations. This will also include refreshments and an anniversary cake which will be cut at 6pm.
From 6:30pm, talking points will include the challenges faced by the NHS over the last 12 months, local health spending, developments in the area as well as the priorities of the CCG over the next year.
There will be an opportunity at the end of the meeting to ask questions and chat with Governing Body members.
Simon Cox, Chief Officer of NHS Scarborough and Ryedale CCG, said: “There have been a number of challenges faced by the NHS this year. However, we have seen some good progress in the work of the CCG, some examples being the consultation around extended access to General Practice services and the developments in our smoking at time of delivery and diabetes health campaigns.
“The AGM is a great opportunity for us to hear from members of the public and get their opinions on the work of the CCG and how we could improve our services. It is also a chance to provide local patients with more information on the services we commission first hand.
“We understand the importance of public engagement and hope the meeting will encourage patients to share ideas and feedback to the Governing Body. We look forward seeing new faces and welcoming back any others.”
The AGM is open to everyone, but if you intend to come along, please email SCRCCG.firstname.lastname@example.org – refreshments will be available from 6pm for anyone attending.
