Public welcome at November CCG meeting

Southport and Formby Clinical commissioning group (CCG) in Sefton is encouraging anyone with an interest to go along to their November governing body meetings.

The CCG hold governing body meetings every two months in public, so people can hear them discussing and making decisions about local health services.

Doctors, nurses and other health professionals who make up the committee will discuss a range of issues including the performance of the services they commission, like hospitals and community care.

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

“We invite the public along to this formal meeting to listen to the CCG’s plans. Residents also get the chance to ask any questions they have before the meeting gets underway.”

The NHS Southport and Formby CCG meeting will take place on Wednesday 1 November at the Family Life Centre, Ash St, Southport, Merseyside, PR8 6JH, at 1.00pm

Papers will be available here beforehand: www.southportandformbyccg.nhs.uk/about-us/governing-body/governing-body-meetings

Anyone who is interested in attending is asked to call 0151 247 7000 to confirm their attendance.

Note:

NHS Southport and Formby CCG have been responsible for buying or ‘commissioning’ the majority of local health services since 1 April 2013, when primary care trusts were abolished.

NHS Southport and Formby CCG’s membership is made up of 19 GP practices.

'Coastal Squeeze' and how it affects Formby

Formby is the fastest eroding property in the Trust’s care.

The Trust is working with partners to adapt to the rapid and long term changes this stretch of coastline is experiencing to protect both landscape and wildlife.

This video was published in November 2015 and features travel writer Simon Calder. It's been viewed just over 4500 times, that's about half the number of houses in Formby. Perhaps it needs a wider audience, sooner rather than later.
