Your chance to quiz NHS leaders


NHS Eastern Cheshire CCG, the organisation which plans and buys healthcare for 206,000 people in Cheshire East, is to hold a public question and answer session as part of its annual general meeting on Wednesday 29th August.

The event at Macclesfield Town Hall will run from 6pm to 8pm.

Following brief presentations on the CCG’s achievements, ambitions and challenges, members of the public will have 90 minutes to quiz leaders on important health subjects.

This will include discussion on plans to accelerate the joining up of health and social care services to help people with long-term conditions to live well at home.

The NHS body also aims to provide a community rehabilitation service for people who have had a stroke.

As well as this, there will also be an opportunity for health bosses to hear from patients about their healthcare experiences.

Dr Paul Bowen, CCG clinical chair and GP with McIlvride Medical Practice in Poynton, said: “We hope you’ll be able to join us to learn more about our work to inspire better health and wellbeing, and to face the challenge of achieving value for money while providing excellent care.”

NHS ECCG represents 23 GP practices which together plan and buy healthcare for people in and around Alderley Edge, Bollington, Chelford, Congleton, Disley, Handforth, Holmes Chapel, Knutsford, Macclesfield, Poynton and Wilmslow.
