Health commissioners in Sefton are inviting local residents with an interest in their work to come along to their next governing body meetings.
NHS Southport and Formby Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS South Sefton CCG hold their bi-monthly governing body meetings in public, so that people can listen to the discussions and the decision making processes of the doctors, nurses and other health professionals that make up these forums.
Dr Rob Caudwell, local GP and chair of NHS Southport and Formby CCG, said: “As always, members of the public are encouraged to attend our governing body meetings. At these meetings you will be able to listen to us make decisions and will learn about the developments happening in the area.”
Dr Craig Gillespie, local GP and chair of NHS South Sefton CCG, said: “Attending one of our governing body meetings is a good way to find out about the work that’s been happening in Sefton over the past couple of months and to learn about our plans for the future.
“The decisions we make at these meetings have an impact on the whole community, that’s why everyone is encouraged to attend.”
NHS South Sefton CCG’s governing body meeting will take place on Thursday 5 September at Merton House, Stanley Road in Bootle at 1pm. Papers will be made available here beforehand.
