Residents will have the chance to meet with health leaders and hear more about exciting health and care projects at City and Hackney Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) Annual General Meeting. Please see an event flyer here.
Taking place on 5 September, from 7.15pm - 9pm, the meeting will feature presentations from members of the CCG’s Governing Body who will look at the highlights and successes of the previous year, current and future work of the CCG to improve and support residents’ health and care, and how money is being spent to provide services.
A packed agenda will explain: how the CCG is working closer with the council and other organisations to provide better coordinated health and care services through integrated commissioning; a new 'neighbourhoods' programme which puts GP practices and local communities at the centre of services across eight areas; and how residents and patients are involved in the decisions taken to improve and shape local services. Attendees will also be invited to ask questions and share their thoughts to those on stage, including: Dr Mark Rickets, Chair of City and Hackney CCG; Catherine Macadam, CCG Public and Patient Involvement Lay Member; Jane Milligan, Accountable Officer for all North East London CCGs; and David Maher, Managing Director of City and Hackney CCG.
The second part of the AGM will focus on Community Services. These services help patients to manage long-term conditions, preventing the need for admission to hospital, or treat those who are seriously ill with complex conditions at home. Jonathan McShane, former Hackney Council Cabinet Member for Health and Social Care who is supporting City and Hackney health and care partners, will lead a workshop on how these services will be shaped in the future.
The CCG and its partners are looking at how social care, community health care and community mental health services can be brought closer together to ensure they work in a more joined-up way. The interactive session will give attendees the opportunity to discuss and feedback their views about new approaches of delivering community services for local people.
Dr Mark Rickets, CCG Chair, said: “The Annual General Meeting is an opportunity to share our work with City and Hackney residents, while also inviting them to coproduce new initiatives with us to tailor services to meet the needs of our communities. The ongoing conversation with patients and residents is crucial as we look to design community health and care services in the next few years - this programme has the potential to radically transform how local services are delivered, and we intend to ensure local views and experiences are at the heart of our planning.”
The City and Hackney CCG Annual General Meeting will be taking place on Wednesday 5 September, 7.15pm – 9pm, at the Tomlinson Centre, Queensbridge Road, Hackney, E8 3ND.
Light refreshments and drinks will be provided.
