10:10am Thursday 10th October 2013 in News
NHS Redditch and Bromsgrove Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), the NHS organisation in charge of buying local health services for the two towns, is inviting residents to get involved with a scheme to improve and shape health services.
The ‘Now Have your Say’ membership scheme is a new and easy way for local residents to understand more about Redditch and Bromsgrove CCG and to get involved in the planning of local health services.
Dr Jonathan Wells, chair and clinical lead for the CCG said: “NHS Redditch and Bromsgrove CCG recognises that quality services start with the people that are using them, and by involving local people we can improve the efficiency of local services together.
“We are committed to patient and public involvement and we want the scheme to enable the CCG, patients, carers and the public to work together to better understand and help shape local health services.”
The aim of the 'Now Have Your Say' membership scheme is to give people the opportunity to; have their say on health services, access up-to-date information about their CCG, help the CCG improve the future of local health services and learn more about specific areas of interest.
There are different levels of involvement to this membership scheme to cater for everyone’s requirements.
The scheme is open to anyone aged 14 and upwards who is registered with one of the 22 GP practices that encompasses NHS Redditch and Bromsgrove CCG.
To join the free scheme, residents from Redditch, Bromsgrove and surrounding areas can register online at www.redditchandbromsgroveccg.nhs.uk/get-involved/now-have-your-say or pick up a leaflet from their local GP practice.
