NHS Bury Clinical Commissioning Group’s (CCG) next routine Primary Care Commissioning Committee and Governing Body meetings are scheduled to take place on Wednesday 27 September members of the public are invited to come along to observe. Both meetings will be held at Townside Primary Care Centre, Knowsley Place in Bury (5th floor).

The Primary Care Commissioning Committee oversees the work of the CCG in relation to the commissioning of Primary Care services, such as GP services. Regular items on the agenda include finance and quality. The committee will meet from 12.30pm.

The Governing Body meeting is scheduled to take place from 3pm. This meeting is where discussions and decisions happen in relation to the planning and funding of local health services. Regular items on the agenda will include finance, performance and quality.

On the same day is the CCG’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) which will be held in the Minden Suite of the Fusilier Museum, Bury. Members of the public are invited to attend from 6pm where the CCG team and colleagues will host an exhibition for attendees to learn more about its work and priorities during the year and beyond. The meeting itself will commence at 7pm.

Public questions relating to agenda items being discussed at the Governing Body and Primary Care Commissioning Committee meetings are welcome. These should be submitted in advance to allow sufficient time for the question to be picked up and processed in advance of the meetings.

Dr. Kiran Patel, Chair of NHS Bury CCG said: “Our Governing Body and Primary Care meetings are held in public and provide a great opportunity for local people to come along and find out more about what we do and to get closer to the decision making process about the services we plan and purchase on their behalf. We regularly welcome members of the public to our meetings and I would encourage anyone who would like to find out more about what we do and how we make decisions to come along.

The AGM is an opportunity to learn more about our work and to get involved as well as our opportunity to highlight activities and progress made during the last year, and about our plans for the future.”
