Join us for our annual public meeting in September
23rd August 2019 | By Liz Mattock | Posted in
Leicester City Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), the organisation responsible for planning and managing most healthcare services for people living in or registered with a GP in Leicester, will be holding its Annual Public Meeting (APM) on Tuesday 10th September, 2019.
The event, where the CCG will present a summary of its annual report and accounts for 2018/19, will be taking place at The Orange Rooms, Voluntary Action Leicester, 9 Newarke St, Leicester LE1 5SN.
Registration and refreshments will be available at 6.30pm, providing people with the opportunity of a short meet and greet session with some of the CCG Governing Body members. The formal annual public meeting starts at 6.45pm.
The public will be able to learn about the CCG’s main achievements, spending over the last year and our plans for the future to improve the health and life expectancy of people living in Leicester. There will be the opportunity to ask questions of a CCG panel including the CCG’s clinical chair Professor Azhar Farooqi, managing director Sue Lock, and director of finance Michelle Iliffe.
Professor Azhar Farooqi said: “We look forward to welcoming patients and the public to hear how we have performed over the past year, the difference we have made and the changes to services . You can also learn about our plans for the future and ask any questions that you might have about health services we are responsible for.”
Some notable achievements from 2018/19 include:
• A reablement service has supported 1726 people with short term support, help them live independently at home and avoid admission to hospital
• A total of 180,000 appointments and procedures were carried out in community locations rather than in Leicester’s acute hospitals in 2018/19 – freeing up much needed capacity within hospitals
• More than 88 per cent of the number of people estimated to be living with dementia have been diagnosed, compared to a target of 66.7 per cent – meaning that Leicester is among the highest performing areas of anywhere in the country.
It would be appreciated if anyone wishing to attend the APM or ask a question to the panel on the night, register via this link. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0116 295 0750. It is particularly important that you let us know if you have special requirements such as access needs or the need for a sign language interpreter.
