Members of the public are being invited to join The Star editor Nancy Fielder in quizzing health chiefs on the future of the NHS in Sheffield at a public meeting.
Nancy will be putting her questions to a panel of directors at the annual general meeting of the NHS Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group.
Residents are also welcome to attend and put their questions forward at the Sheffield United Football Club Conference Suite in Bramall Lane on Tuesday, September 13, from 2pm to 4pm.
Dr Tim Moorhead, GP at Oughtibridge Surgery and chair of NHS Sheffield CCG, said: “This year we wanted to do something different to make the event more interactive and engaging so we are really pleased to have Nancy Fielder quiz us about the challenges and opportunities facing the NHS in Sheffield.
“We are entering a period of transformation for the NHS unlike ever before so this is a great opportunity for local people to hear more about it and get involved.”
At the event, Sheffield CCG’s annual report and accounts for the year 2015/16 will be available.
There will also be a chance to have your say on how the CCG should ‘shape Sheffield’, as the health organisation and its partners, including Sheffield City Council, begins to develop a five year strategy for health and social care in the city.
A spokesperson for the CCG said: “The chair, accountable officer and governing body will endeavour to answer as many questions from the audience on the day as time permits but to ensure your question is answered in as much detail as possible, please send in advance of the meeting at the time of booking or by emailing SHECCG.EngagementActivity@nhs.net.
