Members of the public will get to hear about plans for the future of Sheffield’s health and social care services at a meeting next month.

The Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group is to hold its annual public meeting on September 10 between 2pm and 4pm at The Source building on Meadowhall Way.

The agenda includes a table discussion around how health and social care services should look by the year 2020.

The group’s financial performance will also be discussed, with its annual report and accounts for 2014/15 made available.

Dr Tim Moorhead, local GP and Chair of NHS Sheffield CCG said: “The meeting will give us the opportunity to reflect on the year, and to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing the NHS in Sheffield.

“This is a meeting for local people to get involved in their health service so if you would like to find out more about services in Sheffield please come along.”

There will be information stalls at the meeting to inform and promote a range of CCG initiatives including the ‘Involve Me’ engagement network, winter ‘Choose Well’ campaign and the work of the CCG, including the current review of urgent care and our plans to improve elective care. Partner organisations will also be attending.

Anyone who wishes to attend is asked to book their place online via www.nhssheffieldccg.eventbrite.com, or alternatively by calling the engagement team on 0114 305 4609.

People who wish to ask a question of the Governing Body should email it in advance of the meeting at the time of booking or by emailing SHECCG.EngagementActivity@nhs.net.
