The doors will open from 1.30pm with an interactive marketplace where staff will showcase key CCG health projects which will offer attendees an opportunity to understand how health services are commissioned and to speak directly to CCG staff. There will also be information stalls from other local health-related organisations.

The formal meeting, which runs from 3-4pm, will include a presentation from members of the CCG’s Governing Body, reflecting on progress made during its first year as the lead commissioner for health services across the area.

The AGM will also look to the future, examining the CCG’s strategic plans and highlighting some of the key initiatives the CCG will be implementing to further improve and develop local health services. This will be focused around what needs to happen to ensure local health services can cope with a growing older population.

There will be an opportunity at the end of the meeting to ask questions, and for people to meet the Governing Body team.

Dr George Campbell, Whitby GP and Vice-Chair of Hambleton, Richmondshire and Whitby CCG, said: “By listening to what matters most to people and patients regarding their health and social care we are better able to commission services that truly reflect the needs of the local community.”
