Public invited to have say on health services in Rugby and Coventry

Rugby Editorial 13th Jul, 2018   0

HEALTH services in Rugby and Coventry will be under the spotlight at a meeting on Wednesday (July 18).

Members of the public are invited to attend the annual general meeting (AGM) of the NHS Coventry and Rugby Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), which plans and buys health care services in the area from an allocation of £550million.

This year’s AGM will show how the money has been used, and outline the CCG’s goals for the future.

Presentations will be made by CCG chair and local GP Dr Sarah Raistrick and accountable officer Andrea Green, summarising achievements, challenges and developments from the past year.

Dr Raistrick said: “We would encourage anyone who has an interest in the local NHS to come and join us at our AGM.

“The event is an excellent opportunity for members of the public to come along and find out more about the local health services, and speak directly to the people responsible for planning these services.”

Attendees will hear about the CCG’s work with the voluntary sector to promote healthy living and support people with diabetes and cancer.

They will also hear about child safeguarding work and how local patients have played a vital role in securing new GP services in Brownsover.

Attendees can also share their ideas on how the CCG should deliver services in the future during a Q&A session.

Visit to register for the event, which takes place at the Benn Hall in Rugby from 09.30am-12.00pm on Wednesday (July 18).
