Your chance to have a ‘Big Chat’ with local health commissioners

NHS South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS Southport and Formby CCG are inviting local people to attend their combined ‘Big Chat’ and annual review events in September.

The events are an opportunity for residents to find out about the work that their local CCG has carried out in the past year. Attendees are also invited to share their experiences of local health services and give their views about the CCGs’ latest and forthcoming programmes and plans for the next 12 months. 

Dr Craig Gillespie, local GP and NHS South Sefton CCG chair, said:

“These events give people the chance to have a chat with their local health commissioners and share their feedback about our plans. We will also combine these events with our Annual General Meeting (AGM), so people can find out about how well we have performed during the past year."

 Dr Rob Caudwell, local GP and NHS Southport and Formby CCG chair, said:

“There will also be a ‘marketplace’ of information stalls promoting local health, care and support services. Some of the services attending the events will include Macmillan, Healthwatch Sefton and a 7-day GP extended access."

 “The feedback we receive during these kinds of events is really useful. I encourage anyone that is interested in finding out more about local health services and commissioning, and who is interested in sharing their views on these topics, to attend one of our ‘Big Chat’ events.”

 The ‘Big Chat’ events will take place on:

  • NHS Southport and Formby CCG: Tuesday 10 September, 1pm to 4.30pm at The Bliss Hotel (formerly the Ramada Hotel) adjacent to Floral Hall on the waterfront in Southport, PR9 0DZ.
  • NHS South Sefton CCG: Thursday 12 September, 1pm to 4.30pm at Bootle Cricket Club, Wadham Road, L20 2DD.

Residents are encouraged to attend the event for their local CCG in order to get the most relevant information.

People are asked to register in advance by emailing southportandformby.ccg@nhs.net for the event on 10 September, or southsefton.ccg@nhs.net for the event on 12 September. You can also register by calling 0151 317 8456.
