Public invited to CCG Governing Body meetings

Blackpool Football Club

People living in Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre have been invited to see local NHS decision-making in action.

The next meeting of the Governing Bodies at NHS Blackpool and NHS Fylde and Wyre Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) will take place at the NHS offices at Blackpool Stadium, Seasiders Way, on Tuesday 3 March 2020.

Both meetings will be held ‘in common’, meaning they will take place in the same room and at the same time, from 1pm to 3pm. The two CCGs have held Governing Body meetings in this way since September 2019 as the organisations continue to work together more closely and a number of members were previously required to attend both meetings individually.

The role of the Governing Bodies is to oversee the work of the CCG and ensure arrangements are in place to allow the organisation to effectively carry out its duties.

Blackpool CCG chair Roy Fisher said: “The CCG Governing Bodies make some very important decisions and we encourage people to come along and be part of it.”

Members of the public are invited to attend and observe the meeting. They can also submit any questions they want to be asked in writing in advance of the meeting. To do this, complete the form at www.fyldecoastccgs.nhs.uk/contact-us/general-enquiries/
